There will be 10 other orien- 
tation sessions for incoming fall 
freshmen throughout the summer. 
During each four-day program, 
freshmen will take academic 
placement tests, be assigned ac- 
ademic advisors with whom they 
will meet to pre- register for fkll 
courses, and meet with student 



than the 3,650 freshmen for whom 
there are places in Septemtwr. 
Under the plan, the 325 students 
will take the equivalent of their 
first semester this summer, leave 
during the fall semester, and re- 
turn &) February at the beginning 
of the second semester to rejoin 
their class. They will take the 



personnel officials and University places of February graduates and 
upperclassmen to discuss campus 
life. On the final day of each 
orientation period, parents of fr- 
eshmen will visit the campus to 
discuss the University and their 
sons' or daughters' role In it 
with program coordinators. 

The first group to arrive Ibr 
orientation this summer are mem- 
bers of the Swing Shift, a spec- 
ial program that enaldes the Uni- 
wrsity to admit more students 



those who leave during the fall 
semester. 

PRESSURES 
With increasing enrollment pre- 
ssures and a limited number ol 
freshman places each year, this 
plan gives many students an op- 
portunity to attend the University 
which they might otherwise have 
been denied. During the five 
years the program has t)een in 
effect, many students have found 



it an advantage to get their ac- 
ademic careers started during the 
summer when there are not quite 
so many University activiiles. 
They also have the opportunity to 
take courses at other schools in 
the fall to gain additional credits 
or to work and accumulate neces- 
sary funds. 

Swing Shift classes will begin 
on June 22 and end on August 28. 
Most students in the program will 
be taking four courses and phy- 
sical education during the ten- week 
session. Simon Keochakian, Di. 
rector of the Swing Shift Program, 
says that this year there will be 
a greater variety of courses a- 
vailable to students enrolled in 
the program.

Off The Flag 



By Art Bucfawaid 

WASHINGTON — There's much 
more to buying an American Flag 
these days than people think. 

I discovered this the other day 
when I went into a store to pur- 
chase a Flag to fly on the 4th of 
July, which this year Bob Hope 
and the Nixon Administration have 
declared a RepuUican national ho- 
liday. 

The salesman said he was hard 
put to keep Flags in stock. "I 
owe it all to television,'* he said. 
"Every time one ofthe major news 
programs films one of the freaks 
burning the American Flag, we 
sell out. What can I do for you?" 
"I'd like to buy an American 
Flag." 

"Good for you, sir. Show those 
lousy people what you think of 
them." 
"Well, I, uh, uh..." 
"Would you like it for light com- 
bat or heavy fighting?" 
"I beg your pardon?" 
"We have this model here which 
is very popular with the Hard 
Hat*;. The bottom part of the pole 
is tipped in metal so when you 
hit someone with it, it doesn't 
crsicR " 
"I 'hadn't really thought to.." 
"Now this model over here, 
while slightly more expensive, is 
perfect for close, hand-to-hand 
combat. The eagle on the top of 
the pole has been%ade,especially 
sharp so when you'lungt with it, 
you can really do dama^ to the 
groin..." 
"That's very nice, but..." 
"Here's an all-metal pole. It's 
much harder than the wooden one, 
and you can really get someone in 
the shins with it." 
"Look, I..." 

"This is our shorty. The pole 
is half the regular size, so it can 



be used as a club instead of a 
lance. Many of our customers 
like to get in the thick of it and 
swing wildly. The Hard Hats had 
great success with it in St. Louis 
when they beat up a woman and 
her veteran son." 

"It's a beauty," I said, 'Twt I 
was hoping that you would have 



a.." 

"This one here is heavier in 
weight and you can swing it like 
a baseball bat. Feel the grip on 
it. It will never fly out of your 
hands." 

"I was looking for something 
less expensive." 

"We have the 'mighty midget' 
over here. It's only 2-feet long 
and while it looks fragile, you 
can really do damage with it." 

"All right. I'll take a mighty 
midget." 

"Very good, sir. Do you have 
any identification with you?" 

"Identification?" 

"Yes, sir. We always ask for 
identification. Do you have any 
proof you support President Nix- 
on's policies in Camlxxlia?" 

Well, I don't have it on me. I 
didn't know you needed proof of 
that to buy an American Flag." 

"Of course you do. The Ameri- 
can Flag is a very lethal weapon 
and we don't sell it to any strang- 
er who just comes in off the 
street." 

"I'm sorry. I should have 
brought some identification with 



me. 



» 



"Why did you want it in the 
first place?" 

"Well, if you don't tell anyone," 
I said, "I was going to hang it out 
my window on the 4th of July, to 
protect my home."

WhitmoreTandemLeaves 



Two top administrative staff 
members at the University of Mas- 
sachusetts in Amherst retired this 
week after giving a total of 77 years 
of service to the institution. 

Retiring are Miss Alice J. Alley 
of Cottage St., Amherst, and Mrs. 
Lionel G. David of KingSt., North- 
ampton. 

Miss Alice "Sally" Alley, se- 
cretary to Chancellor Oswald 
Ti^w, has served for five presi- 
dents in her 42 years at UMass. 
A graduate of AmheistHighSchool, 
she attended Bryant and Stratton 
Business College in Boston, and 
began her career at Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College in 1928 
as a secretary for President Ros- 
coe W. Thatcher. 

Working with her for the last 
35 years has been Mrs. Ethel Holt 
David, a graduate of Northampton 
HiKh Scbool and Bav Path Insti- 



tute. Mrs. David is retiring as 
secretary to University Secretary 
Robert J. McCartney. Her career

President Hugh P. Baker. 

Chancellor Tippo, commenting 
upon their retirement, said, "In 
every institution there are always 
one or two people, largely unseen 
by the public, who are the back- 
bone of the administration. Sally 
and Ethel have filled that role at 
the University of Massachusetts 
for many years. With their vast 
knowledge of the University they 
have expedited the day-to-day ad- 
ministrative operations ofthe Uni- 
versity and added a humane touch 
to everything they did. We will 
miss their dedicated service to 
this institution and the Common- 
wealth."

Dissents Mark Commencement 1970

Commencement at the UMass 
campus is usually a s\aM affair 
with little advance excitement, ex- 
cept for tlie degree recipients and 
the planners of the day. But the 
1970 commencement was big news 
for weeks, because the senior class 
decided they wanted to plan some 
of the day's events. 

The seniors desired a signifi- 
cant show of protest against the 
three aims ofthe strike, as a show 
of support for the student strike. 
Among the plans were the elimi- 
nation of the national anthem, the 
lowering of the flag to half mast, 
the absence of usual music at the 
commencement ceremonies and a 
portion of the program directed 
primarily at the strike. 

The plans for the elimination 
of the 'Star Spangled Banner" 
and the flag at half mast became 
a burDioK issue that threateoed 



to mar the activities with pro- 
tests far more intense than were 
ever planned. Legislators upon 
hearing of the seniors' plans 
threatened to cut the university 
budget to nothing, branding them- 
selves as patriots, branding the 
seniors as audaciously disregard- 
ing traditions. 

Finally the Commencement task 
force (a student-administrator 
group that plans commencement,) 
by a narrow vote, decided to in- 
clude the national anthem in the 
program. However, the flag would 
remain at half staff, because, as 
it was pointed out to the frantic 
legislators commencement day fell 
on Memorial Day. 

A group of approximately 200 
students protested the anthem's 
inclusion in the program, by fil- 
ing into the stadium as the anuiem 
was belnft liayed. carryimt sinus 



such as "the Kent 4'' and "the 
Jackson 2." Also a vast majori- 
ty of the graduates wore arm- 
bands or stencils with different 
strike signs. And a speech by 
Acting Dean of Arts and Sciences 
Seymour Shapiro on the events 
of the strike while an address by 
Senior Class David Veale also 
directed itself to the strike and 
the Commencement controversy. 
The day's events turned out 
peaceful. President of Yale Uni- 
versity Kingman Brewster, de- 
livered a peaceful speech. Gov- 
ernor Sargent delivered his usual 
nebulous phrases, while honorary 
degree recipients included New 
York Times columnist James Res- 
ton and Boston Pops conductor 
Arthur Giedler, retiring UMass 
President John Lederle. and newly 
appointed Prexy Robert Wood.

Air Your Views 

The spring's student strike affected the University com- 
munity more than any one single campus event. The student 
body, of course, was intensely involved. And administra- 
tors were frantically involved in figuring out what was go- 
ing on to explain to legislators. 

But maybe the group that was in the most tenuous spot 
were the faculty. Most faculty found themselves without 
classes during the strike, and undecided on what action to 
take. It was up to the Faculty Senate to direct them. Un- 
fortunately, the Faculty Senate is not accepted completely 
by either those who were deeply involved in support of the 
stri ke and those who were adamantly opposed. 

The Faculty Senate finally decided on a grading propos- 
al for the University that in effect would not penalize any 
student involved with the strike and ruled that faculty 
should make themselves available for any students wishing 
to see them about class work. 

This action, along with the stance of high administra- 
tors, which in a sense, was accommodating toward the 
strike, antagonized a large group of faculty who felt that 
their academic freedom was being threatened and who felt 
that the University was taking a political stance it should 
not take. They, in turn, took out advertisements in several 
Western Massachusetts newspapers protesting the alleged 
threat, calling themselves "Faculty for Academic Free- 
dom". This action has in turn brought a reaction from 
strike supporting faculty and faculty objecting to the ad- 
vertisement's wording. 

Division among faculty is Intrinsically dangerous for 
the University. A revolting faculty can destroy a Univer- 
sity. What makes the situation even more complex is that 
positions on both sides of the issue are never made clear. 
(For example, many signers of the ad signed it for different 
reasons than the organizers had for making the ad.) 

With the idea that maybe some different ideas from dif- 
ferent sides of the faculty could serve help a potentially 
grave problem for the University, the SUMMER STATESMAN, 
will solicit faculty from both sides of the issue to pre- 
sent their views of the strike, the faculty statement, and 
the faculty senate action. The STATESMAN will give space 
to any responsible faculty response to this request, with- 
in reasonable length. 

We feel on an issue like this, that is still so nebulous, 
both sides should be aired, before a valid editorial stance 
can be taken. 

The Endless 



"If We Beat Up A Few More, Maybe We'll 
Get Invited To The White House" 



Strike Outlined By Shapiro In Speech 



Summer 



On Sunday over 325 swingshifters began to find out what the UMass 
educational experience is all about. Hopefully their personal "ex- 
perience" with the University thus far has not frustrated or aUena- 
ted them to any large degree. ^ t. • 

The University is often a frustrating, unresponsive, and boring 
place that can seem irrelevant and meaningless to undergraduates, 
and the Swingshift program, for reasons which are largely beyond the 
administration's control, seems to emphasize UMass's negative as- 

DGCtS 

The program suffers from some of the ills of the Summer ses- 
sion in general. The course offerings, while more extensive than in 
past summers, is smaller than that of the regular academic year, 
and many of the University's better and more interesting teachers 
are off, participating in better and more interesting endeavors. 

Student activities are less numerous and varied and the few that 
are conducted in the summer are quite often victimized by student 
apathy. With upperclassmen attending only one six week session, 
this situation is likely to worsen. 

There are some advantages to being here this summer. In an all 
freshman dormitory, swingshifters are more Ukely to get to know 
more people than they would if they Uved with upperclassmen who 
are preoccupied with previous activities and friendships when they 
arrive Prospects for employment during the fall exceed this sum- 
mer's* in the range of jobs open to students and salary offered. And 
the long fall vacation could prove valuable for self-examination 
after one semester. 

Above all, don't take this place too seriously.

Summer poblicotion at the Univeriity of Mos»oehu«ettt, the Statetmo ,% in 
no way reloted to the Mo««achu«ettt Daily Collegion, ond is published weekly 
and bi-weekly from June 24 to August 30. 



Before writing anything else, 
first it must be known that (1) 
political conventions are stu- 
pid and (2) after watching one 
close up for two days, it is very 
easy to obtain an eltist attitude 
toward politicians. With that out 
of the way, a review of the De- 
mocratic State Convention can be 
begun. (I hasten to add that this 
cannot be an analysis because 
the Convention was a circus and 
since circuses are shows and 
shows are reviewed, this is a 
review). 

Frankly it was with a lot of 
trepidation that this writer view- 
ed the caravan of asses (not an 
insult, ye legislator, for aren't 
dem crats donkeys and aren't don- 
keys asses?) converging upon poor 
unsuspecting Amlierst a couple of 
weeks ago. There is little to 
respect in any form of politics 
right now, never mind the Mas- 
sachusetts State Democratic par- 
ty. I resolved myself to stay 
aloof from the show that would 
take place in an aptly gross and 
dingy Curry Hicks Cage. If this 
was the democratic process, then 
the good old USA is more in trou- 
ble than is evident even from lis- 
tening to Jerry Rubin. 

But for all its grossness and 
senility and uselessness, the con- 
vention and politics have perverse 
sense of excitement and aura, and 
a wee bit of glamour. (Imagine 
Thaddeus Buczko, right here in 
Amherst). And, though kicking 
yourself all the way and regret- 
ting it, and knowing full well the 
increasing futility of politics, you 
found yourself getting drawn to- 
ward Uie convention, finally de- 
ciding, what the hell, work for 
someone. 

But who is the problem. You 
could choose from such lumina- 
ries as Fishy Frank Bellotti, or 
Mangy Mossy Donahue, or Klean 



By ROBERT NORTHSHIELD 

Contributing Editor 
Kevin White, or Fighting Freddy 
Langone or even. Jumping Joe 
Pandolfo. 

Now narrowing it down wasn't 
too hard. First you eliminate 
anyone running for anything less 
than governor. And that means you 
work in the governor's race. Now 
to pick and choose. First Bel- 
lotti. He's mod now without a 
crewcut, but still with the same 
entourage that looks like the 
Untouchables. And he has lost so 
many times, you wonder whether 
he's masochist or something. 

Then there's Donahue. He 
doesn't smile, which isn't so bad. 
But he looks like he's been in a 
backroom for ten years plotting 
political coups. And though pu- 
blicists are frantically trying to 
brand Donahue as a super dove 
for proposing a state referendum 
on the war, you kind of overlook 
that when his workers tell you to 
get the hell away from headquar- 
ters, because your hair is a shade 



longer than Mossy's and because 
you had sneakers on and not black 
pointed shoes. And if all that 
wasn't enough, there is the fact 
that UMass, being a chief bene- 
ficiary of Donahue's dispensing of 
state funds from his Senate seat, 
gave Donahue every privilege on 
2ampus, short of use of dining 
commons to make enemy dele- 
gates sick. 

Finally, White. He looks Uke 
a governor. A face carved just 
for Mount Rushmore, with a dis- 
tant gaze in his eyes. He even 
is sort of Uberal with a pretty 
wife and pretty girls all from 
fine Yankee stock working for 
him. A perfect choice. 

Well, old Kev got beat at the 
old convention, to make a long 
story short. And he didn't get 
much help from this guy. You see, 
even Klean Kev is a politician 
and politicians have this affinity

(Editor's note - Seymour Shapiro, 
Dean of the College of Arts and 
Sciences, delivered this account 
of the Student Strike and UMass 
at University Commencement on 
May 20. Dr. Shapiro's remarks 
provide the best single attempt 
at recounting the events of last 
May, and we reprint this speech 
in order that the Swingshift Fresh- 
men on campus this summer can 
sort out, for themselves, the com- 
plexities of the strike. In this 
way, we hope, they may be able 
to understand the changes the Uni- 
versity underwent during the 
strike. 



My remarks are directed to the 
recent campus- student strike 
which gave to the graduating class 
before us a final set of memories 
quite different from those of pre- 
vious graduating classes. 

I shall attempt to give high- 
lights of the strike with two ob- 
jectives in mind. FIRST to set 
the record straight for those who 
followed events only through the 
newspapers and SECOND^ to start 
all of us in the University com- 
munity on the road to an assess- 
ment of what happened - an eval- 
uation of gains and losses from 
this unusual experience. 

On Friday the 1st of May the 
DAILY COLLEGIAN carried the 
front page headline. NIXON OK's 
CAMBODIA ATTACK. 

A smaller headline read 4000 
TROOPS TO NEW HAVEN. This 
referred to the demonstration sch- 
eduled for the very next day on 
behalf of the eight Black Pan- 
thers facing trial in New Haven. 
The confluence of these two ev- 
ents presented an assembled 
group, largely students deeply ag- 
grieved by one issue, with a sec- 
ond major issue. A frustration 
level high enough to have gathered 
them to New Haven from all over 
the country even higher as they 
pondered the escalation of a war 
they believed to be senseless. 
When the students left New Haven 
many had agreed to carry back to 
their campuses a plan for common 
course of action. 

Word of this "Strike Plan" began 
to spread through the campus on 
Sunday, May 3. 

The DAILY COLLEGIAN of the 
next day carried the one-word 
headline STRIKE superimposed on 
a stylized clenched fist. The cap- 
tion beneath this figure in the 
COLLEGIAN read, "A Nationwide 
Student Strike Against the Nixon 
War Policy in Asia and the Ad- 
ministration's Policy of Alleged 
Political Supression Gained Sup- 
port at 20 Universities Across the 
Nation Yesterday, Including U- 
Mass." As the Strike spread, the 
clenched fist sprouted all over 
campus, on walls, windows, shirts, 
jackets and armbands. 

The Strike call included three 
issues! 

L. That the United States ceas* 
its expansion of the Vietnam War 
into Cambodia; that it unilaterally 
and immediately withdraw all for- 
ces from Southeast Asia: 

2. That the United states Go- 
vernment end its systematic oiVr 
pression of political dissidents 
and release all political prisoners 
such as Bobby Seale and the Black 
Panther Party; and 

3. That the Universities end 
their complicity with the United 
States War Machine by an im- 
mediate end to defense research, 
ROTC, counterinsurgency resear- 
ch and all other such programs. 

Some faculty and students felt 
more strongly about the Cambod- 
ian invasion than about the other 
two goals; others believed all three 
to be very closely linked - think- 
ing of them as symptoms of an 
ailing society. 

Approval was quickly given to 
establish a strike headquarters in 
the Student Union, a building fi- 
nanced entirely by student fees, 
and responsible to the Student Un- 
ion Governing Board. A Strike 
Steering Committee was establish- 
ed to which each dormitory, sor- 
ority and fraternity was asked to 
elect representatives. On Mon- 
day evening, the main issue was 
whether to join the Strike. De- 
bates were held in dorms. Mass 
meetings went on for hours in the 
Student Union. The Student Sen- 
ate, the Senior Class and the 



Freshman Class voted to support 
the Strike. A statement from the 
President's Council of the Fresh- 
man Class may help to explain the 
large-scale support for the Strike: 
"The seniors entered the Uni- 
versity in 1966 and there was an 
unconstitutional war. They are 
graduating in 1970, and there is 
still an unconstitutional war go- 
ing on. We, as Freshmen, en- 
tered the University in 1969 and 
there was an unconstitutional war. 
Must we leave this University in 
May, 1973, with the same or lar- 
ger war hanging over our heads?" 
The atmosphere of Monday eve- 
ning was intensified by the stunning 
news of the death of four Kent State 
students. This sobering and shock- 
ing event reinforced both a sense 
of outrage over national policy and 
the striker's resolve to protest 
non- violently. 

The Strike formally began on 
Tuesday, May 5. The COLLEG- 
IAN listed 62 colleges and uni- 
versities which had joined the 
strike movement. That list grew 
to more than 200 over the next 
few days. There were picket 
lines around all major academic 
buildings. The Strikers had pled- 
ged themselves to be non-obstruc- 
tive. The official policy was that 
classes were to continue and those 
who wanted to attend were free to 
do so. Order was maintained by 
over 100 volunteer marshalls, re- 
cruited from student and faculty 
ranks. In maintaining order, the 
University administration agreed 
to place primary reliance on the 
marshals. The confidence in the 
marshals was justified - they re- 
mained unobtrusive but present 
wherever there was a possibility 
that protest might turn violent. 
The dedication of the campus to 
peaceful demonstration and dis- 
cussion prevented any serious in- 
cidents over the several weeks of 
the strike. Campuses elsewhere 
were not so fortunate. Tuesday 
had earlier been planned as Spring 
Day, a long-cherished traditional 
day of frolic on our campus. 
Spring Day was cancelled. No one 
seemed to miss it. 

Late Tuesday afternoon, the Fa- 
culty Senate convened. The meet- 
ing room was jammed. Some 
faculty felt intimidated by the pre- 
sence of so many students, anrious 
for faculty endorsement of strike 
aims. Debate centered about whe- 
ther the faculty senate should re- 
struct itself to academic matters. 
Some faculty members argued that 
in the interests of academic free- 
dom the faculty should not take 




sides on political issues. 

In the end, a motion was pass- 
ed which commended the strong 
intent of the students to conduct 
the strike in a non- violent manner. 
The motion supported the strike 
goal dealing with the war in Sou- 
theast Asia and went on to state 
that no punitive measures should 
be taken against students engaged 
in lawful protest. However, the 
question of whether the Faculty 
Senate should take a stand on po- 
litical issues is sUU a vexing 
one. It will certainly continue to 
be debated on this and other cam- 
puses next year. 

Wednesday saw the beginning 
of workshops, designed by the 
Strike Committee to supplement 
or replace regular classes. These 
discussion groups were a domin- 



ant educational feature of the Str- 
ike. 

Workshops were sometimes led 
by undergraduate or graduate stu- 
dents, but mainly by faculty mem- 
bers who added these to their 
normal teaching schedule. Attend- 
ance was high and enthusiasm for 
the discussions even higher. Let 
me mention some subjects cov- 
ered: 
The Economics of the War 
Background to Conflict in Sou- 
theast Asia 
Racism 

Forms of Political Action 
Social Psychology of War 
Political Rhetoric 
Powers of the President 
Why be Non- Violent? How to 

be Non- Violent 
Why Strike? 
Literature & Revolution 
Practical Politics 
Vietman & The Cold War 
On Wednesday I led one work- 
shop on the topic THE PEOPLE 
AND CONGRESS. 1 found some 
70 students anxious to learn how to 
be effective within the system by 
influencing their congressmen. 
Out of this discussion several 
message centers were organized 
in dormitories, where paper^ en- 
velopes and stamps were provided. 
Students, regardless of whether 
they supported or opposed the war 
were encouraged to stop and write 
to their Congressmen. Similar 
tables in the Student Union were 
manned around the clock by stu- 
dents and faculty, both hawks and 
doves. The flow of mail from 
Amherst to Washington that week 
was enormous. 

Another workshop in which I 
participated brought together some 
300 students for discussion of 
PHYSICS, RESEARCH AND THE 
WAR. Some came with minds al- 
ready made up, but the greater 
number came to listen and learn. 
With no credit and no exams, 
most stayed for two hours as we 
discussed the role of research in 
a University, the moral respon- 
sibility of a scientist for the uses 
to which his research is put, and 
the right of a scientist to devel- 
op the weapons his country re- 
quires. 

Some workshops met only once; 
others continued for many days, 
becoming short courses in the 
war, political persecution, racism, 
and the military- industrial com- 
plex and its relationship with uni- 
versities. Some serious students 
claim that workshops were the 
most exciting and productive ed- 
ucational experiences which they 
have had at the University, which 
may tell us something about our 
REGULAR programs. 

The high attendance at work- 
shops illustrates the success of 
the Strike in redirecting the re- 
sources of the University toward 
major issues faced by the Nation. 
Study of such issues is a proper 
concern of the University. It 
should supplement the regular ac- 
tivities of the campus and must 
never, for any prolonged period of 
time, replace them entirely. Some 
students and faculty believe that 
the University came dangerously 
close to losing the neutrality and 
objectivity necessary to academic 
freedom during the Strike period. 
This too will be a subject of dis- 
I cussion next fall. 

By Thursday the pattern of the 
Strike had been established. Work- 
shops were regular events, most 
faculty were nolding classes as 
scheduled for those students who 
wanted to attend, the marshals 
were conscientiously following 
their pledge, and the Strike Steer- 
ing Committee was meeting at 
least daily to exercise direction 
and to cope with problems as they 
arose. And problems did arise. 
One problem concerned semes- 
ter grades. By May 5th, 77 class 
days of the semester had been 
completed; only seven class days 
and final examinations remained. 
Completing courses in the normal 
way was, of course, an open op- 
tion. However, it was clear that 
many students were prepared to 
sacrifice the last part of the se- 
mester in favor of participating in 
Strike activities. But they were 
not willing to sacrifice the ac- 
complishment of the preceeding 77. 
Some special grading arrange-

tration relations, Shapiro was one of several adminis- 
trators who put-in 18 hour days during the Strike. 



ments seemed called for. Feeling 
ran high while we struggled to re- 
solve the issue. It took two tries 
and a lot of confusion Iwfore a 
policy acceptable to both the Fac- 
ulty Senate and to most students 
was found. Still the whole epi- 
sode leaves an after -taste. I was 
disappointed to discover that many 
students were willing to follow 
the dictates of conscience only 
after a guarantee that no price 
would be extracted. 

Another problem developed at 
Dickenson Hall, home of the ROTC 
program. One goal of the Strike 
was to end ROTC on this campus. 
A militant splinter group decided 
that an aj^ropriate means to this 
end was to disrupt normal activ- 
ities in Dickenson Hall. The group 
declared the Ixiilding a center for 
women's litjeration activities and 
remained there day and night. They 
were quickly joined by a group 
of marshals and then by a group 
of cadets. The presence of these 
different interest groups kept ten- 
sion to a moderate level, although 
there were moments of grave con- 
cern. When one rememl)ers the 
fires and the fights over ROTC 
elsewhere, our problems seem 
trivial, the disruption at Dick- 
enson Hall became a vehicle for 
mutual education. On entering 
the building, day or night, one 
would encounter meml)ers of the 
three groups discussing with each 
other issues such as the nature of 
non- violent protest, the engage- 
ment of the University in milit- 
ary training, and the war in Sou- 
theast Asia. In the end, every- 
one talked himself out and the 
disruption ended. While there is 
better understanding^ agreement 
is still far off. ROTC will con- 
tinue to be a campus issue next 
fall. 

Friday, May 8, was Legislators 
Day. Alx)ut fifty members of the 
General Court visited the cam- 
pus. They visited workshops and 
had an opportunity to talk to stu- 
dents who were eager to tell them 
what the Strike was about. Sim- 
ilar programs were arranged for 
the many parents who visited over 
the weekend. 

The first week of the Strike 
ended on Saturday with a large 
all-night party by the pond the 
only activity reminiscent of the 
non-lamented Spring Day. Ten- 
sions were released by high-dec- 
ibel rock music and even some 
skinny-dipping in the pond. Of 
all the events during the Strike, 
ttiis party was the one which most 
upset and disturbed our neightx)rs 
and passers-by. 

The Strike went on in full force 
for another week. Activity grad- 
ually declined as final examina- 
tions came and more students left 
campus for the summer. There is 
much that a short account must 
omit. Let me conclude by saying 
that there are many ways in which 
love of one's country may be ex- 
pressed. The nation-wide Strike, 
for most of its participants, was 
a demonstration by a group im- 
patient for change Ixit intensely 
concerned to see their country 
emerge with a reinforced, renew- 



ed dedication to peace and the 
promises of the Bill of Rights.

for having terribly obnoxious peo- 
ple surrounding them. And poli- 
ticians are prone to be pretty 
unprincipled when it comes to 
votes. 

Actually the convention was a 
valuable experience. You saw all 
these leaders of the Massachusetts 
citizenry close up, able to see 
names in the newspaper come a- 
live. You could see a group of 
delegates drunk and nude, swim- 
ming in a motel swimming pool 
trying to harrass local females. 
You could see them telling peo- 
ple that their jobs and livelihoods 
were down the drain if they didn't 
vote for so and so. You couM 
see them stagger toward the con- 
vention an hour late, and asking 
what everyone was voting about. 
You could see them rise in de- 
bate over a birth control plank 
in the platform and say that if 
this was passed the American 
family would be ruined and the 
country would be down the drain. 

Perhaps the most symbolic 
thing was an 80 foot blimp trum- 
peting the name of one candidate. 
It was held up by hot air.

iFilm Review 



Kelly Continues 

By ALBERT BENSON 

The opening scenes of Tony Richardson's new film "Ned Kell- 
ey" begins with THE END being flashed across the screen and 
ends with Mick Jagger's body dangling from the end of a rope. 
Having seen the rest of the film, I can't help wishng that it 
had ended there. 

It didn't, however, but continued, and continued, and continued 
to dejdct the life and times of Ned Kelley, an outlaw in the Aus- 
tralian bushlands at the turn of the century. The story itself be- 
gins with Kelley's release from prison. It follows him in his at- 
tempts to "go straight", his failures, and his inevitable run in 
with the law. It could possibly have succeeded as a film if the 
plot were left to itself. 

But it wasn't. Due to Mr. Richardson's heavy-handed direct- 
ing, certain scenes became so melodramatic that they were lu- 
dicrous. In one scene, for example, Kelley's sister, after learn- 
ing that her brother has just killed six men, retorts, "Yes, but 
he's such a good boy. You've really got to get to know him." 
Another scene, ruined by melodramatic treatment, occurs when 
Kelley's breast beating, hair pulling, mother is arrested by the 
poUce. After two and a half lines of Grade B, "This land is 
mine. You can't take me off my land!" dialogue, she turns de- 
fiantly towards the arresting officer and screams "Pig!" 

For the remainder of the movie the viewer is offered a series 
of champed -up vignettes. Ranging from a stuffy, intolerant, 
British army office r to a Jewish cattle rustler who looked like 
a refugee from "The Merchant of Venice", the movie rounds 
itself out with Jagger delivering a speech on civil liberties. 

If the pompous melodrama of the movie doesn't wipe you out, 
the weak performances by Jagger and the supporting actors will. 
Running the gambit of emotions from A to C, Jagger cavorts 
throu^ his role as the rugged Kelley. Not only does he not have 
any dramatic talent, he also lacks the ability to remain unobtru- 
sive in scenes where he is not called upon to act. 

UMass Fills Pollution Info Gap 



A New Breed 

UMass Geologist Stares Into Space 
To Unlock Mother Earth's Secrets 

UMass' George McGill is one of a new breed of geologists who are taking a look at the solar sys- 
tem in order to find out new things about the earth. 



Working under two grants from 
the National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration, Dr. McGlll is 
making a study through NASA pho- 
tos of circular structures on Mars 
and the moon. 

"Through comparative studies 
of Martian and lunar ring structur- 
es I hope to define their fundamen- 
tal characteristics and perhaps 
set guidelines for recognizing ar- 
eas on the earth where these large 
ring structures may once have ex- 
isted," he explained. 

The UMass geologist is work- 
ing unde r the hypothesis that the 
ring structures on Mars, craters 
on the moon and ancient ring 
structures on earth all have a 
common cause. "I think the cause 
is the impact of an asteroid-sized 
body followed by a tremendous ex- 
plosion," he said. 

On the moon, he will study Mare 
Orientale, the youngest and best 
preserved of the large lunar ba- 
sins. He will use Lunar Orbiter 
rv photos and work under a $16, 
228 grant from the NASA Lunar 
Exploration Office. The study of 
the large ring structures on Mars 
will use Mariner photos and is 



supported by a $6508 grant from 
the NASA Office of Planetary Pro- 
grams. 

In the Mare Orientale study, 
Dr. McGiU will use the NASA 
photos to construct a structural 
and stratigraphic history of the 
basin. He will analyze the frac- 
ture patterns by time categories 
as a means of testing the impact 
plus explosion hypothesis. 

In the Mars study he will first 
make a reconnaissance study of 
Mariner photos to determine the 
general characteristics of ring 
structures, then select the best- 
preserved example for more de- 
tailed study. 

He will use the data from this 
study to compare large circular 
structure s on Mars with large 
lunar basins, particularly Mare 



Orientale. ''Hopefully, this com- 
parison should permit us to de- 
cide if large ring structures on 
different planets have common or- 
igins," he exj^ained. 

This data from space will offer 
a set of guidelines for locating and 
interpreting fossil ring structures 
on earth, if there is any chance 
that they are still recognizable, 
the UMass geologist believes. On 
earth, such structures have been 
modified or obliterated because of 
the mobility of the earth's crust 
and the effects of weathering. 

"The moon, because it lacks 
the atmosphere and hydrosphere 
necessary for rapid erosion, may 
have preserved for us examples 
of structures of major importance 
in the development of the earth's 
crust," Dr. McGiU said. 



At UMass 

River Diversions Studied 



Just about everything the aver- 
age person would want to know 
about the fresh water ponds of 
Cape Cod is in a publication by 
the Water Resources Research 
Center of the University. 

The publication is a 102-page 
inventory of all ponds of five 
acres or more on Cape Cod, list- 
ing the size, means of access, 
depth, clarity, water quality, de- 
gree of pollution, type of bottom, 
amount of vegetation, type of fish 
stocked, if any, and many other 
facts. It also contains maps of the 



Cape Cod towns and of the major 
ponds. 

Although designed primarily as 
a research document, the lxx)k is 
available to the public at $1.50 per 
copy and may be ordered from the 
Water Resources Research Cen- 
ter, University of Massachusetts, 
Amherst, 01002. It is publication 
No. 10-1. 

According to author James Mc- 
Cann, the book is "a compilation 
of all available information on the 
physical, Ijiological, and land-wa- 
ter use characteristics of the 



ponds, lakes and reservoirs five 
acres or larger in Barnstable 
County." Barnstable County be- 
gins at the Cape Cod Canal and 
includes the 15 Cape Cod towns. 

Dr. McCann is a federal Bureau 
of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife 
staff member on the UMass facul- 
ty. The book is the first in a series 
of reports that will eventuaUy co- 
ver every county in the state, he 
said. 

Data for the study came from 
published sources or from offi- 
cial files. 



A federal grant has been award- 
ed to the University of Massachu- 
setts for a study of the long-range 
implications of futre diversions 
of Connecticut River floodwaters 
to the Boston Metropolitan area. 

Director of the one-year pro- 
ject is Bernard B. Berger of the 
UMass Water Resources Re- 
search Center. He emphasized 
that the study is to help form fu- 
ture public policy on out-of-l)asin 
diversions, rather than affect the 
present plan to divert a relative- 
ly limited quantity of floodwater 
from the Connecticut to the Quab- 
bin watershed via the pumped sto- 
rage facility at Northfield Moun- 
tain Reservoir. 

According to Prof. Berger, 
"While present diversion places 
a very small demand on the flood 



flow it is for seen that in decades 
to come the issue of diversion 
will be raised again as Boston 
water requirements countinue to 
grow. The object of this project 
is to develop a basis for rational 
decision malcing for future diver- 
sions." 

The study, supported by $30,000 
from the Office of Water Resources 
Research of the U. S. Department 
of the Interior, will be ap inter- 
university project. Involved will 
be the state universities of Con- 
necticut, Massachusetts, New 
Hampshire and Vermont, all of 
them in states which touch the 
Connecticut. 

Answers to two main sets of 
questions will be sought, according 
to Prof. Berger.

rant Holders Urged 
|To Develop Scholarshii 

The University has been awarded a grant of $7,850 by the Max 
Kade Foundation in support of a "Max Kade Distinguished Pro- ^ 
fessorship" for 1970-71. 

Dr. Erich H. Markel, president of the foundation, stated that 
grants for these professorships are made "to encourage the re- ' 
cipient institution to enlist outstanding scholars, to enrich ihe\ 
intellectual development of the university, and to make possible i 
a special effort in a particular field." According to Mrs. Bar- ^ 
bara Burn, Director of International Programs at UMass, the ; 
recently awarded grant is the second grant made by the Max Kade I 
Foundation relating to the Freiburg Program of the University, i 
the first having l)een made in 1968 for books and furnishings for 
the program's Atlantic Studies Institute in Freiburg. 

The Freiburg Committee has announced that Dr.. Barnard H. 
Ostendorf of the English Department of the University of Frei- 
burg will be ttie visiting "Max Kade Distinguished Professor" 
in the UMass English department in 1970-71. He will teach 
advanced courses in American literature, with particular em- 
phasis on the influence on American literature of German phil- 
osoi^ical thinking in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. 

As part of the Freiburg program, now in its fourth year, three 
University of Massachusetts professors have gone each year to 
the University of Freiburg where they are accepted as visiting 
professors of that University. In 1970-71 Professor Gary Aho 
of the English department of the University of Massachusetts 
will teach at Freiburg as part of the exchange between the Eng- 
lish departments of the two universities which brings Dr. Os- 
tendorf to Amherst. 

Also teaching at Freiburg in 1970-71 will be Dr. Laurence 
Ryan of the German Department who will be director of the Frei- 
burg program next year. Dr. Gerald Braunthal of the department 
of government. Dr. Bernard Spivack of the department of English, 
and Dr. Joel Halpern of the anthropology department 



Needs, Problems, Goals Explored 
At Alternative Media Meeting 



UMass Pioneer 
Receives Honors 



Representatives from the under- 
ground media converged on the 
Goddard CoUege campus in Plain- 
field, Vermont, last weekend to 
explore the possibilities of un- 
derground papers, F.M. radio sta- 
tions and other types of media 
in the formation of an alterna- 
tive culture. 

The stated goal of the confer- 
ence was to evolve a media which 
would be responsive to the needs 
of the people. According to Jane 
Dennison, a member of Women's 
Liberation, the conference brought 
people together to create a new 
media which would be in the con- 
trol of the people. Seminars and 
discussion groups were held to 
determine what had been done and 
what developments could occur in 
the new media. 



RADIO'S ROLE 

Pacifica radio, KPFK-FM, of 
Los Angeles has formed a news 
service, Radio Exchange News, to 
fill in the information void, cre- 
ated by the regular media. Am- 
ong the accomplishments of this 
group are one of the first de- 
tailed accounts of the tragedy at 
Kent State, a continuous coverage

of campus unrest in broadcast re- 
ports from over one hundred cam- 
puses across the country, one of 
the first reportings of the kill- 
ings at Jackson State, and exclu- 
sive investigative reporting show- 
ing that it was a police officer's 
bullet, not a sniper's, which kill- 
ed a student at the University of 
California at Santa Barbara. 

Radio Free People dealt pri- 
marily with tapes of interviews 
and discussions with people and 
atxjut programs concerned with 
issues which participants said are 
confronting the alternative culture. 
From Paul Goodman on "Compul- 
sory Mis- Education,'' to "Rel)el- 
lion, the Fort Dix 38", the tapes 
deal with the issues of govern- 
mental repression, racism, and 
women's rights. 



NEWSPAPE'RS ALSO EXPLORED 
Newspapers were also explored 
as a driving force in the forma- 
tion of a new culture. Papers such 
as "The East Village Other", 
"The Rat," and "The Guardian" 
sent representatives to discuss the 
role of the underground press in 
the cultural revolution. Many of 
these representatives felt that the 



A pioneer in the wildlife field 
has been honored by his former 
students at the University of Mas- 
sachusetts in Amherst. 

Dr. Reuben Edwin Trippensee, 
Professor Emeritus of wildlife 
management at the University, was 
among the first to earn a Ph.D. 
in his field. He is nationally known 
for his two- volume text '*Wildlife 
Management." 

Former students joined this year 
to honor him with a bronze plaque 
placed in the Holdsworth Natural 
Resources Center on the Amherst 
campus. The incription pays tri- 
bute to Dr. Trippensee's "teach- 



ing and concern for students." 
He taught at the University from 
1936 to 1960. Dr. Trippensee's 
teaching career includes experi- 
ence in teaching from grade 1 
through graduate school. He was 
educated at Ferris State College, 
Michigan State University and the 
University of Michigan, where he 
earned the Ph.D. in 1934. Prior to 
his appointment of the University 
faculty, he was employed by the 
United States Forest Service. Dur- 
ing his tenure on the Massachusetts 
faculty, he lectured at Yale Uni- 
versity and was an officer of the 
Connecticut River Watershed

underground press was bemg tak- 
en over l)y outside interests and 
was losing effectiveness as an ag- 
ent of change. An instance was 
cited in which a newspaper, deep- 
ly involved in community action, 
was taken over by the Mafia. Oth- 
ers expressed the fear that many 
of the underground papers were 
evolving into "established corpor- 
ations." 

Representatives of rock groups 
and certain record companies were 
also afraid that much of their im- 
pact was being sapped as their po- 
wer and money increased. An 
ex-record company executive from 
New York alleged that small re- 
cord companies were being co- 
opted by larger ones, causing lar- 
ge numbers of creative people and 
talent to leave the business. 

The influence of the large cor- 
porations at the conference itself 
was visible in the form of record 
company executives who mingled 
with the crowds giving out free 
records and other inducements to 
get people involved with their com- 
panies. The picture, however, was 
not totally black. Examples were 
given of community musicians, 
musicians who return the profits 
from their appearances to the com- 
munities in which they live. Col- 
lective ownership of record com- 
panies was also discussed. 

The conference was attended by 
representatives of over 300 radio 
stations, 800 media represen- 
tatives, and many area residents. 
Featured guests included Paul 
Krassner, editor of THE REAL- 
IST, Richard AUpert, former Har- 
vard psychologist and mystic, and 
several rock groups. Among the 
groups sponsoring the event were; 
Committee to Defend the Panther 
21, Radio Free People, Newsreel, 
Blue Bus, N.Y. Mwdia Project, 
Lil)eration News Service, Media 
Women, THE GUARDIAN Theatre 
of Southpaws, and Paradigm Rec- 
ords.

The IrtJass Trustees at Monday's formal meeting in Wareham approved a modified version of the

The Board presented President Lederle (far riglit) with

Auditor Qvestions 
Fund Appropriations 



Questionable financial dealings 
of the School of Education be- 
came the focus of a recent state 
auditor's report. 

A routine audit of the Univer- 
sity's books for tiie period t)e- 
tween July 1, 1968 axid June 30, 
1969 uncovered the transactions 
in question. They involved trust 
funds, not State fuiids. 

Most irregularities were re- 
lated to the School of Educat- 
ion's Center of Innovations and 
"the faculty member in charge 
of ttiis program", the report sta- 
ted. The report does not name 
the faculty me- 
mber; however, ^ 
university sour- 
ces last week 
said that Dwigbt 
W. Allen, Dean 
of the Sebool, 
was in charge of 
the program at 
the time. 

Dr. Allen la 
vacationing out- 
side the country. 
The auditor's 
report showed 
that "unrelated 
items" were ch- 
arged to an edu- 
cational film 
fund which waa 
never anthorli- 
%A by the Board

The report also charged that 
UMass films were sold to the 
corporation for $900 less than the 
published price of the films, and 
that individuals serving on the 
Board of Directors of the private 
corporation were hired by the 
UMass film center as consultants. 
Sources at the University said 
that Dr. Allen had formerly ser- 
ved as a director of Education 
Associates, a West Coast film 
distributor, but has since left the 
corporation. 

Questions also were raised ab- 
out required approval for out-of- 
state travel ex- 
penses which 
were not sought 
until after trips 
were taken.

tor a 1968 Col- 
orado trip in qu- 
estion "were

dent"; a com- 
plete accounting

■ot yet been 
compiled. 

According to 
the report, a 
check for $650 
was missing in 
connection with

tween the Univ-

cal school com- 
mittee. The 



amended by Worcester Trustee 
and retired Army general John 
J. Maginnis^ with the support of 
Chancellor Oswald Tippo, permits 
Air Force and Army ROTC to re- 
tain four year programs and to 
allow, Ixit not necessarily to gu- 
arantee, credit for courses taught 
by military personnel. 

While courses with sul)stantial 
"academic area" content would be 
open to all non-ROTC students, 
courses dealing with specialized 
military subjects presumably 
would only b& open to cadets, and 
those courses under Maginnis' am- 
ended version of the proposal would 
be granted credit on the same lia- 
sis and criteria as is applied to 
all University courses. 

The Faculty Senate has there- 
fore l)een put in a position it 
clearly did not desire, and it will 
now have to determine the "ac- 
ademic quality" of these courses. 

According to one usually re- 
liable observer, if the Faculty 
Senate does decide that certain 
specialized courses do not merit 
credit, it will in a sense \3% forced 
to reverse itself, Iwcause the Ac- 
ademic Matters committee sup- 
posedly felt that these courses 
meritcKl credit when they were 



He also felt that the Faculty 
Senate might be subject to severe 
Trustee criticism if they with- 
draw credit from these courses 
because certain trustees might 
threaten to make a comparative 
examination between existing ac- 
credited courses which in the wo- 
rds of General Maginnis, "would 
not stand the light of day", and 
the more professionally oriented 
ROTC courses. 

Most of the discussion on the 
ROTC issue however centered ar- 
ound the cutting of the program to 
two years. The Faculty Senate's 
rationale for reducing the pro- 
gram was that a more intensive 
approach is more academically 
sound than the present single cre- 
dit introductory courses. 

A summer camp session tw- 
tween sophomore and junior ye- 
ars would be used to teach pros- 
pective cadets the rudiments of 
military courtesy and combat. In 
a memo conceridng the Maginnis 
amendments. Military Affairs sub- 
committee chairman P. R. Jones 
pointed out that not one person 
in the Faculty Senate spoke ag- 
ainst the recommendation to dis- 
continue the 4 year program in fa- 
vor of a two year program. 



Maginnis defended the status quo 
by pointing out that the Army had 
experimented with a two year pro- 
gram and had not l)een satisfied 
with the results. Some Trustees 
expressed doubt concerning how 
receptive the Army is to innova- 
tion, but Maginnis maintained that 
the Army was the best judge of how 
effective its own program was. 

The Trustees also authorized the 
administration to warn the present 
residents of the Lincoln and Uni- 
versity Apartments of a sul}stan- 
tial impending room rent increase. 
The average rent for the apart- 
ments which house married and 
graduate students and some fac- 
ulty averages $72 a month some 
$40 l)elow the self- liquidating le- 
vel. 

The rent will prol)ably be in- 
creased to $110 and will possibly 
be increased to $150 the same 
rate as that of the new married 
housing the University is building. 
However, the consensus of the Bo- 
ard was to "tread lightly." Ch- 
airman Healey felt that any stu- 
dent subsidies and scholarships 
would be adjusted and were ap- 
propriate for needy students that 
might be affected. 




In line with its practice ot meeting at least once at all of the university's field 
stations and campuses, the meeting was held in the Wareham Field Station. 



contract was signed, the report 
stated, l>y an assistant professor 
instead of the University treasurer 
as required by regulations. 



Grade Questions Linger 

The grievance committee of last May's student strike has announced 
that students wishing to use the pass-fail option for courses last sem- 
ester had to register for the option with their instructors. 

If any students, the committee announced last week, feel that their 

f>reference in grading options was ignored, they should notify the regis- 
rar's office, after obtaining approval of their instructor and the pro- 
vost's office. 

The registrar will then change any failing grades to W and all passing 
grades to P, if requested by the student. 



WEDNESDAY, JULY 1, 1970 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



BUCHWALD 

The Flying Nun 

WASHINGTON - The question came up atdinnerthe other night 
when people were discussing the Tory victory in Great Britain. 

"Why is it that the English were able to rule the world for al- 
most 200 years whUe the United Stales has been unable to hold 
on lor less than 25 years?*' 

An Englishman at the table repUed, "It»s quite simple, my dear 
i chap. There was no television." ^ ,^ ^ . 

**0f course," someone else said, ''television hadn't been in- 

vented then!" 

"On the contrary," the Englishman said, "it had been invented 
but we were wise enough not to let the secret out." 

We all looked at him in amazement. 

"Lord Cashmere of Rutland invented television in the year 1775, 
he said "You can look it up in the secret archives of the British 
Museum. He was actually trying to invent the radio; rather than 
sound, he got a picture on his box instead." 

"What kind of a picture?" a skeptical guest asked. 

"A picture of a redcoat in Boston flogging a Colonial old man. 

•It is hard to believe," someone said. 

"Quite In any case. Lord Cashmere knew he was onto something 
big so he took the box to King George in and demonstrated it to 
the' court, which at the time was meeting on the Television Moors 
in Wales." 

"So that's where the name came from," someone said. 



"If 

court 



s all in the secret archives," the Englishman said. "The 
was aghast at what they were seeing. There were large, 









court was agnasi ai wnai mey were beemg. iucxc wciciaigv-, 
burly redcoats beating on the poor Colonials, kicking women and 
children, setting fire to their homes and committing unbelieveable 

atrocities in the villages." , r, . ^. -^ < k-.* 

" 'Lord Cashmere,' the Archbishop of Canterbury said, what 
in God's name have you wrought?' 

"Lord Cashmere said, 'I'm not sure, but it's possible that this 
invention could change all of mankind. Just think, my noble 
friends, that with this box our people would bear witness to the 
great news events of our time. No longer would we be dependent 
on ships for our news. We could actually see our victories as 
they were happening. What a boost for the morale of the Empire. 

"A cheer rent the air over Television Moors. But then Gen. 
Sir Ronald Paley, the king's adviser on military affkirs, spoke up: 
'I do not wish to dash cold water on this box, but may I pomt out 
to you gentlemen that this invention could be the end of the Empire? 
Do you believe our young people would remain silent after watching 
what we were doing in the Colonies, or for that matter anywhere 
else*^ The country would be split asunder. The strength of Eng- 
land is that her people have no idea of what we're up to abroad. 

"King George m spoke up. 'Sir Ronald is right. If we're to 
wage war in the Colonies, we don't want the people at home to 

know what we're doing. x x ^ .^ -^u * *u 

" 'Besides, if we have to pull out, I want to do it without the 
whole world watching us. Lord Cashmere, you have done your 
country an ill deed by this damnable contraption. I order you at 
the pain of losing your head never to reveal your secret. We slull 
bury the box here on the moors, and Britannia will rule the waves. 
The Englishman paused as we hung on to his every word. 
"Then you kept the secret all these years," someone said. 
"That's correct," the Englishman said. "Thirty years ago an 
American anthropologist, digging around the moors, discovered 
the box. He turned it over to RCA who, without thinking of the 
consequences, started to manufacture them on a large scale. I 
imagine you can date the difficulty of the United States as a world 
power from the day Lord Cashmere's box was made available to 
the world," 
'*What a great story," I said. "Do you mind if I write it?" 
"Go right ahead," the Engl<shman said. "It can't do Britain 
any harm any more."

Upward Bound Bridges Gap 
For W.Mass High Sclioolers 



Sixty- five high school students 
from Springfield, Holyoke, and oth- 
er western Massachusetts com- 
munities are currently living and 
studying in the Southwest as part 
of Project Upward Bound. The 
students are here to bridge the 
gap between high school and col- 
lege. 

While most of the students have 
high academic potential, many, be- 
cause of a lack of money and 
poor scholastic and motivational 
training, were not even consider- 
ing college until they became in- 
volved with "Upward Bound." 

Starting in the summer of their 
sophomore year of high school 
the students were brought to the 
University for motivational train- 
ing. "This includes", according 
to Charlotte Brodie, one of the 
directors of the program, "getting 
the students interested academi- 
cally with subjects that are mean- 
ingful to them". "In the first 
year of the program", she sta-

Asst. Managing Editor 

ted "they got the students involv- 
ed 'with math and physics by hav- 
ing them drop weights off of one 
of the unfinished towers of South- 
west and reproving Galileo's the- 
ory". 

Other subjects where motiva- 
tional techniques replaced "rote" 
methods include English and So- 
ciology. In Sociology members 
of the class did work in the com- 
munity rather than sitting in a 
classroom and reading from a 
book. In English original poems, 
plays, and essays replaced gram- 
mar lessons. 

In the summer of their junior 
year the students were given more 
traditional school work. This iii- 
cluded more homework and writ- 
ten assignments. The informal 
structure of the program remained 
unchanged. Group discussions and 
meetings were often held. "We 
try to maintain a sense of com- 
munity". Miss Brodie remarked. 

In the summer of their senior 



year, the students were brought 
to the University and formally in- 
troduced to the academic struc- 
ture. They were urged to take 
college courses to help them bri- 
dge the last gap between high 
school and college. At the end of 
the summer they were ready for 
college. 



In terms of the number of stu- 
dents involved in the program 
who go on to college, the pro- 
gram is an over-all success. All 
of the students graduating from 
the program go on to college in 
one form or another. There are 
no figures on the number of Up- 
ward Bound members who grad- 
uate from college yet available. 
The program began in 1966 with 
100 students. There are 65 cur- 
rently enrolled. 



Government Admits Indian Tribes 
Were Robbed of Millions in Deals 



WASHINGTON (AP) - The In- 
dian Claims Commission Monday 
accepted much of the Navajo In- 
dians' contention that they were 
shortchanged on millions of acres 
of Western land. 

The Navajos won't get the land - 
mostly suitable only for grazing 
and lightly populated - but they 
may get a considerable dollar set- 
tlement once the commission pins 
down the specific acreage the In- 
dians held in "aboriginal title" 
and tallies its cash value as of 
1868. That was the year they 
were placed on a reservation. 
Monday's order climaxed a suit 
filed in 1951 involving many oth- 
er Indian tribes with conflicting 
land claims. 

The government said the Nava- 
jos could prove consistent, exclu- 
sive use of no more than 10 mil- 
lion acres in Arizona and New 
Mexico. 

The Navajos brought in arch- 
eologists to exhibit "digs" from 
more than 1,400 al)andoned habi- 
tation sites to support their cl- 
aim to 40 million acres. 



The commission took issue with 
both sides but in the boundary 
lines laid down Monday, the Na- 
vajos are credited with what one 
commission official said could be 
about 30 million acres. That is 
about the size of Ohio. 

The ruling means that the com- 
mission decided the Navajos should 
have been compensated in the 1868 
treaty for those 30 million acres, 
or whatever the specific acreage 
is computed to be, when they were 
sent to an 8- million acre reser- 
vation. 

The Navajos contend they were 
paid only a pittance for the land 
they gave up In exchange for the 
reservation property. 

Another related case settled 
Monday dealt with the Hopi Indians' 
aboriginal claims in Arizona most 
of which are inside the Navajo 
claim. 

The Hopis, a stay-at-home 
peaceful people, were eternally be- 
ing pushed around \sy the Navajos 
and other aggressive tribes, the 
commission related, and to protect 
their interests the govprnment in

1882 set aside 2.45 million acres 
for them. 

The Hopis claim they had ex- 
clusive-use title to more than 13 
million acres for which the govern- 
ment paid them nothing. 

In 1937, to settle the increas- 
ingly abrasive situation between 
the Hopis and the Navajos occupy- 
ing their land, the governn ent rul- 
ed that the Hopis would have ex- 
clusive use of only 631,194 acres 
and would have to share the rem- 
aining 1.9 million acres with the 
Navajos. 

The commission Monday ruled 
that the Hopis should have been 
paid, by 1937 land rates, for the 
1.9 million acres taken from them 
and should have been paid, by 1882 
land rates, for what one official 
estimated at up to 5 million acres 
in aboriginal claims. 

Further hearings will be ne- 
cessary in both the Navajo and Ho- 
pi cases to (1) determine the spe- 
cific acreage of the aboriginal, 
claims which the commission re- 
cognized and (2) to fix a value on 
the land at the time of the treat- 
ies to determine whether a fair 
price was paid and if not, to order 
it paid now.

Drop In Centers Aids 
UMoss DrugCommunity 



By ALBERT BENSON 
As the use of drugs has in- 
creased over the past few ye- 
ars, parent's groups, college 
guidance counselors, and oth- 
er concerned citizens have 
worked together to comtat their 
spread, usually centering their 
efforts in the direction of law 
enforcement. But this is not the 
case at UMass. 

While the University still ma- 
intains a hard line towards 
pushers, its attitude towards 
students having drug problems 
has t)ecome more humane than 
most public groups. 

"Our program," according 
to Dr. J.Alfred Southworth, di- 
rector of the counseling ser- 
vices, "maintains education as 
the best method of coping with 
the drug problem". 

Among the educational ap- 
proaches used in this program 
are group discussions, films, 
and some pamphlets. It was 
stressed that any information 
that had been given to students 
was sound and factual. 

"Because students are be- 
coming more sophisticated in 
their approach to drugs," Dr. 
Southworth commented, "we 
must give them authentic infor- 
mation." 

An outgrowth of the educa- 
tional aspect of the program is 
the drop- in center in South 
College. Originally designed as 
a place where all research con- 
cerning the use and abuse of 
drugs could be examined and 
distributed, the center has ev- 
olved into a place where stu- 
dents can go to talk to other 
students alx)ut drugs, to obtain 
accurate information, and to 
find out where to get help if 
mtmtm 



Asst. Managing Editor 
they need it. 

One of the more innovative 
aspects of the center is the way 
in which it is staffed. The cen- 
ter is managed by a group of 
undergraduate students and oth- 
ers who have been involved with 
drugs and who can relate to stu- 
dents with drug problems. 

These staff members talk 
openly and realistically to oth- 
ers about drugs. They also 
speak before dornv, church, and 
civic groups. Their major 
projects include; workshops for 
counselors and heads of resi- 
dence, sessions dealing with the 
problems arising from the in- 
teraction of users and non- us- 
ers, and the establishment of 
contacts with physicians, law- 
yers, and others who might be 
willing to contribute their time 
and services to the program. 

Other innovative aspects of 
the program include the pro- 
cedures used at the infirmary 
to deal with students having 
"bad trips". Students report- 
ing to the infirmary on bad tri- 
ps will be allowed to have a 
ftiend stay with them over night 
to help "bring them down." 

A staff physician is on call, 
ready to help anyone experienc- 
ing trouble with drugs. "We 
are ready and willing to help 
any one on a "bad trip", said 
Mrs. Jane Zapka of the Health 
Services. Mrs. Zapka added 
that any information obtained by 
the health services concerning a 
student's drug problems would 
not be released to anyone, in- 
cluding the student's parents, 
without the written consent of 
the students.

Board Blunders 



We deplore the recent Board of Trustees action, on the 
Faculty Senate ROTC policy. Their interference in an essen- 
tially academic matter was not merely unwarranted, but 
also unwise. 

The resolution which passed the Faculty Senate was a 
result of compromise and consensus within the University 
community. The segments of the program which had obvi- 
ous aoademic merit were given credit. Those segments 
which had an obvious professional bent would not be in- 
terfered with but would not be given credit. The program 
was condensed into two years for academic reasons. The 
faculty reasoned that an intensified academic program 
would be more educationally sound. 

The Board of Trustees decided that the Faculty should 
look individually at the courses offered by the Military 
Science departments. Superficially, this seems reasonable 
but in fact it puts the Faculty Senate in a very difficult 
position. If they decide that some ROTC courses do not 
merit credit then the Military Affairs people will claim fir- 
stly that they were approved when initially begun (although 
in a considerably different University) and secondly that 
their own courses are superior academically in comparison 
with some courses that the Academic Matters committee 
has approved in the past. 

However the most disturbing aspect of the Trustee meet- 
ing was not the lack of understanding on the part of the 
majority of the board concerning the feelings of the Uni- 
versity community towards this issue, for that was to be 
expected. Rather it was the position which Chancellor 
Tippo took during the proceedings. He belittled the Faculty 
Senate's support of the proposal saying that it only passed 
the Senate by one vote. However he neglected to mention 
the Faculty Senate at a later date unanimously reaffirmed 
its' support for the proposal expressly to show its' unity 
before the board. He did not even attempt to communicate 
to the board what the possible repercussions might be at 
the University this fall. He deliberately undercut any 
chance of the proposal passing without the amendments by 
expressing his support for them. 

The Chancellor however, will probably be haunted for 
quite some time because of his blatant insensitivity to 
student. Faculty and even administrative feelings toward 
what the status of ROTC should be here. In choosing to 
actively oppose the University community before the board 
he has probably inalterably alienated people here who he 
will have to deal with in the future. The Chancellor had 
the power to sabotage the faculty proposal Monday, but 
unfortunately both he and the University will eventually 
pay their dues for exercising that power.

Months 



SAIGON (AP) - The Cambodian 
campaign that President Nixon 
called the most successful milit- 
ary move of the war is viewed 
by many observers here as a 
somewhat more limited achieve- 
ment. Still, some officers are 
enthusiastic. 



U.S. officers assert it is really 
impossible for them at present to 
know just how effective the op- 
eration has been. 

"Let's say we estimate that 
we've knocked the enemy off his 
pins for six months," said one 
officer. "1*11 let you know in 
six to eight months if we were 
right." 



Nobody now even seems sure 
how many mortar rounds and how 
much small-arms ammunition we- 
re taken from supply caches in 
eastern Cambodia. 



The most optimistic outlook is 
that the 60 days in Cambodia in 
the all-important 11 provinces ar- 
ound Saigon, the 3rd Corps tac- 
tical zone and in the 4th Corps, 
has bought valuable time in the 
Mekong Delta. 

One senior 25th Division offi- 
cer saw the Cambodian operation 
as denying the North Vietnamese 
and Viet Cong the capacity to be 
effective in the 3rd Corps area 
for at least a year. 



During that time, he said: "We 
expect the South Vietnamese to get 
farther out into the war zones, 
to hold the enemy back the way 
the Americans have been while 
pacification progresses." 

As far as the effect on U.S. 
withdrawal from South Vietnam is 
concerned, he declared: "This op- 
eration has made all the differ- 



ence. I would move troops out 
now with much less trepidation 
that I would have before." 

A field officer of the 1st Air 
Cavalry Division, equally boyant, 
suggest that the next major U.S. 
troop withdrawal could include his 
division, the most important allied 
force in the 3rd Corps. 

"Look at the effect that would 
have," he said. "Already the South 
Vietnamese have proved in Cam- 
bodia that they are a good fight- 
ing force. Pulling out the Cav 
would put them in seven-league 
boots." 



Some observers say Mr. Nixon, 
by drawing on the statistical evi- 
dence, will attempt to makeafiir- 
ly strong case that the Cambodian 
action has been of major impor- 
tance. 



Not all Board of Trustee action was deplorable. We commend 
the board on their difficult decision reached to name the new univer- 
sity library, the "University Library". There must have been hours 
of deep discussion and research to decide on the name. We applaude 
the Board's imagination. 

We also congratulate the Board for selling Mrs. Lederle a fine broth 
of a horse (pictured right). Sentiment sometimes overly influences 
clear thinking, but the Board rejected over-sentimentality to act 
in its usual forthright and decisive manner. 

Finally we congratulate Trustee Haigis, in his building and grounds 
report for saying, "as far as planning all we are doing is moving 
ahead'*. This is indicative of the board's constant striving to improve 
our university. 



President Nguyen Van Thieu of 
South Vietnam astonished Ameri- 
can statisticians Saturday when he 
said 11,867 tons of ammunition of 
all kinds had been cs4)tured or 
destroyed by allied forces. Am- 
ericans at that time were still 
adding up their totals; a day later 
they stood at 1777 tons. 

Discrepancies existed in enemy 
killed: 14,360 according to Thieu, 
11,341 according to the Americans, 
and in weapons captured: 26,399 
or 21.817.

N.Eo Cool To Journalism Schools 



By RICHARD S. KLINE 
S^ Reporter 



Although the cry for competent young journa- 
lists can be beard from editors through Uie entire 
six-state New Enc^and r^on, it is fadUng on deaf 
ears in the New England State Universities. 

The Universities of Maine, New Hampshire, 
Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Conn- 
ecticut pour out Government, History, Geology and 
other majors by the dozens, but the Journalism 
major is a rare animal. In fact there are only 
two independent journalism departments in all of 
the six New England State Universities. 

Information on New England Journalism educa- 
tion was collected in January by a senior at the 
University of Massachusetts. Questionnaires were 
completed lay faculty and administrators at each 
of the New England Universities and the results 
are conclusive. 

Professor Evan Hill of the University of Conn- 
ecticut, where there is no journalism major but 
there are several journalism courses, has a widely 
accepted view of the media program. 

"Newspapers," he says of journalism training, 
"can teach this craft more efficiently than can 
universities which should be teaching what they 
can teach best - political science, history, the 
sciences, sociology, etc." 

A. B. Rollins, dean of the University of Ver- 
mont College of Arts and Sciences, concedes that 
journalism education "is a hot issue" at that uni- 
versity. At UVM there is "pressure from local 
papers" to establish a journalism program, he 
says, but the University does not "feel that the 
demand in Vermont is sufficient to justify the 
expense. . ." 

Further complicating the situation, says the 
Dean, is the debate within the University of "Just 
what should a modern journalism program be?" 
The universities of Maine and Rhode Island be- 
ing the only ones with independent journalism pro- 
grams have settled on what they believe to be ef- 
fective journalism education programs. 

A total of three teachers makes up the entire 
staff of the University of Maine program with a 
total of 12 journalism courses offered. Weighted 
slightly toward theoretical rather than practical 
journalism courses, UMaine claims "a broad 
interdisciplinary liberal arts and pre-professional 
program for students interested in careers in 
journalism. 

The UMaine journalism major must decide on 
one of six course "option" plans to follow during 
his four years. These are: PuWic Affairs, For- 
eign Affairs, Economics Affairs, Literature and Hu- 
manities, Social Welfare, Science Writing. 

On the other hand, the University of Rhode Is- 
land staff consists of three full time and "five 



or six" part time faculty. Their program requires 
that the major take a minimum of 27 course cre- 
dits (hours) in a balance of practical and theore- 
tical journalism courses. 

URI's relatively well defined program is the 
only one of the New England State Universities 
to have some type of journalism accreditation. 
The "department as a unit," states Department 
Chairman M. Dean Ratroukha, "is accredited by 
the American Society for Journalism School Ad- 
ministrators." He adds, "we intend to apply for 
accreditation by the bigger unit (American Coun- 
cil on Education in Journalism) in the spring of 
1971." 

While the University of New Hampshire and the 
University of Vermont offer no journalism courses 
at all, the University of Massachusetts and the 
Univerrity of Connecticut offer non-degree pro- 
grams from journalism sections of the English 
Department. 

Dean Rollins (Vermont) points out that at his 
schiaol there is "strong feeling . . . that the best 
preparation for Journalism is a strong and broad 
liberal arts education caaped by graduate work 
in the professional area. We would say the same 
thing about Law, Medicine, Education and other 
professions. 

"People particularly interested in Journalism, 
radio or television are advised to consider a major 
in Speech with a'specialization in mass communi- 
cations," the Deansays. "In this degree program," 
he continues, '*The student is expected to take 
semester courses in public speaking, survey of 
mass communications, audio production, writing for 
mass communication, motion picture issues in con- 
temporary mass communications, television pro- 
duction and nine additional hours at the advanced 

level." 

The closest thing to journalism training at the 
University of New Hampshire is the two non- fiction 
writing courses offered Ijy the Department of 
English. Journalism- related courses, however, 
exist in the speech and drama department. 

The two schools that offer theoretically similar 
non-degree granting programs differ considerably 
in practice. The journalism bulletin at the U- 
Conn, which lists the five practical journalism 
courses offered there, states that "The University 
believes that the best newsme - whether report- 
ers, editors, editorial writers, or commentators - 
have broad liberal arts backgrounds, and a minim- 
um of college-taught journalism courses." 

Says the University of Connecticut, "The Jour- 
nalism Department believes that the communicat-

Applicants Shun 
Private Colleges 



The stead? growth of high school seniors applymg ^ UMass declined 
this past yea? after nearly eight years of wild grovjh. But this de- 
crease in applicants is an exception to a general trend across the 
state which has seen a dramatic increase m the number of applications 
deceived by State Colleges and a leveling off of appUcants to private 

^''umIss Dean of Admission WUliam D. Tunis reports that UMass 
appUcations leveled off at about 20.000 this past year. Of that num- 
ber, 7 000 were accepted and the school expects a Freshman class of 
about leOO to register in September. ^ ^ u * ♦k^ 

Tunis attributes the leveling off of admissions to what he terms the 
"progressively higher standards for admission" which the school has 
adopted over the last several years. ^ , ,, ^ ^^ i„ *ho r,oc# 

"UMass is no longer an insurance school," he added. In the past 
upwards of 26,000 high school seniors applied for University admis-

of transfers. Costello also noted that more and more of the appU-

of space reasons." . .., ,• ♦ „.,^ *k« 

Costello attributed the rise in public education appUcants and the 

decrease in applicants to private schools to the high cost of private

At Harvard University, admissions applications tailed off from 8,600 

last year to 8,000 this past year, according to admissions director

He continued "As far as the National Defense Student Loan is con-

Amherst Historian Commanger Warns Of Repression 



Pulitzer Prize historial and Am- 
herst College Prof. Henry Steele 
Commager says that repression in 
America is now worse in many 
respects than at the time of Mc- 
Carthyism and attacks Vice-Pre- 
sident Spiro Agnew for "anti-in- 
terrectualism" in a nationally pub- 
lished magazine article. 

Writing in the current issue of 
Look magazine, Commager said 
that "the current offensive against 
the exercises of freedom in Am- 
erica," with regard to the official 
role of government, is even worse 
than what took place in the time 
of Sen. Joseph McCarthy. 

The history professor blamed 
the late senate r for "fomenting 



suspicion and hatred, betraying tne 
Bill of Rights^ bringing Congress 
and the State Department into dis- 
repute." 

Repression now comes "with of- 
ficial sanction and is imposed up- 
on us by officials sworn to up- 
hold the law," he said. Commager 
blamed the attorney general, the 
FBI, state and local officials, the 
police and judges. 

"The President and Vice- 
President," he wrote, "have joi- 
ned in a crusade designed to force 
great newspapers like the New 
York Times and the Washington 
Post to moderate their criticisms 
of administration policies, and to 
frighten the television networks 



into scaling down their coverage of 
events that the government finds 
embarrassing; a position that rests 
on the curious pruficiple that the 
real crime is not official mis- 
conduct but the portrayal of that 
misconduct." 

Commager wrote that the at- 
tack on First Amendment free- 
doms of speech, press, petition 
and assembly "takes the form 
of intimidation and harassment ra- 
ther than of overt repudiation. 

"If repression is not yet as bla- 
tant or as flamboyant as it was 
during the McCarthy years," Co- 
mmager wrote, "it is in many 
respects more pervasive and more 
formidable. 



"Those in high office do not 
openly proclaim their disillusion- 
ment with the principles of free- 
dom, but they confess it by their 
conduct, while the people acquiesce 
in their own disinheritance by 
abandoning the 'eternal vigilance* 
that is the price of liberty." 

The noted Wstorian was elected 
to one of 50 seats in the American 
Academy of Arts and Letters in 



1966. He has been Pitt professor 
of American History at Cambridge 
University and Harmsworth pro- 
fessor of American History at Ox- 
ford University. 

Commager was a member of the 
history faculty at Columbia Uni- 
versity before his appointment as 
Winthrop H. Smith professor of 
American History at Amherst Col- 
lege in 1956.

WASHINGTON - The Democrats 
won't say it publicly, but they're 
not too happy alx)ut the Reput)- 
Ucans stealing the Fourth of July. 
While the "Honor America Day*' 
celebration in Washinj^on has been 
advertised as non-partisan, any 
professional politician knows that 
when the American public sees Bil- 
ly Graham, Bob Hope and Lawrence 
Welk on the platform, the Nixon 
Administration will be the only 
ones enjoying the fireworks. 

An official of the Democratic 
National Committee said, "I can't 
blame the Republicans for what 
they've done. The Fourth of July 
has been around for a long time, 
and WE never thought to do any- 
thing with it. All we ever con- 
sidered it was JUST a national 
holiday." 

"But if you believe the Rep- 
ublicans stole the Fourth of July, 
why did the Democrats join the ce- 
lebration committee?" 

"The Republicans sandbagged 
us . . . They invited us to join 
and had we refused, it would have 
looked as if we were spitting 
on Mom's apple pie. How can any 
politician in this country come 
out against the Fourth of July?" 

"What makes you think the 
Republicans will try to cash in on 
the Fourth of July?" 

"Nothing I can put my finger 
on, but the other day I was up 
at the Capitol for a Flag- rais- 
ing ceremony and after the U.S. 
Marine Band played 'The Star 
Spangled Banner,' I overheard 
Congressman Gerry Ford whisper 
to Sen. Hugh Scott, 'They're play- 
ing OUR song.' " 

"It sounds like you did get 
sandbagged," I said. 

"We can't do anything about 
the Fourth of July any more," he 
said sadly. "But what we're 
starting to worry about is Christ- 
mas." 



"You don't think the Republic- 
ans would steal Christmas?" I 
said aghast. 

"It's in the works already. Bing 
Crosby and Dr. Norman Vincent 
Peale have been asked to head the 
'Keep Christmas in America' com- 
mittee, which is supposed to bring 
Americans together on Christmas 
morning." 

"But it's too cold to hold a rally 
on the Washington MaU on Christ- 
mas morning," I protested. 

"This one will be on televis- 
ion. The plan is to have Martha 
Mitchell and Atty. Gen. Mitchell 
read from 'A Christmas Carol,' 
and David Eisenhower has agreed 
to play Tiny Tim. To make it 
bipartisan, they've asked the De- 
mocrats to supply someone to 
play Scrooge." 

"I can't believe it." 

"You can't, huh? Then why has 
Spiro Agnew been secretly rehear- 
sing "Silent Night* with the Mor- 
mon Tabernacle Choir?" 

"I didn't know that." 

"We also have confirmation that 
the Walt Disney people are build- 
ing a huge manger at the winter 
White House in Key Biscayne. 
where the President is expectea 
to speak." 

"The way you describe it. this 
could even be bigger than 'Honor 
America Day.* " 

"If the Republicans grab both 
the Fourth of July and Christmas," 
my informant said, "it's going to be 
tough for the Democrats to ever 
come Ijack." 

"Isn't there some way you can 
get the Republican s to give you 
equal time, if for no other reason 
than to preserve the two-party 
system?" 

"They've offered us equal time: 
They said we could have New 
Year's Day . . . opposite the 
Rose Bowl Game."

Berger To Direct Program 

UMass Water Resources Center 
Earns Grant For River Study 

A federal grant has been awarded to the University for a study of the long-range implications of 
future diversions of Connecticut River floodwaters to the Boston Metropolitan area. 
Director of the one-year pro- 
Boston water 



Godell, Branch Libraries 
AnnounceSummerHours 



iect is Bernard B. Berger of the 
JMass Water Resources Research 
Center. He emphasized that the 
study is to help form future pub- 
lic policy on out-of-basin diver- 
sions, rather than affect the pre- 
sent plan to divert a relatively 
limited quantity of flood water from 
the Connecticut to the Quabbin 
watershed via the pumped storage 
facility at Northfield Mountain Re- 
servoir. 

According to Prof. Berger, 
"While present diversion places 
a very small demand on the flood 
flow it is forseen that in decades 
to come the issue of diversion will 



be raised again as 
requirements continue to grow. 
The object of this project is to 
develop a haisis for rational de- 
cision making for future divers- 
ions." 

The study supported by $30,000 
from the Oifice of Water Resour- 
ces Research of the U.S. Depart- 
ment of the Interior, will be an 
inter- university project. Involved 
will be the state universities of 
Connecticut, Massachusetts, New 
Hampshire and^ Vewnont, all of 
them in states which touch the 
Connecticut.

i'ifty-six young business execu- 
tives from nine foreign countries 
have arrived in Amherst for the 
eleventh annual University Junior 
Executive Training (JET) pro- 
gram. 

The 48 men and eight women 
are enrolled in a six-week sum- 
mer program designed to give 
them an overview of the newest 
methods of American management. 
The program is being conducted by 
the UMass School of Business Ad- 
ministration and includes work in 
management, marketing, human 
relations, management decisions 
simulation, computer utilization, 
and quantitative methods. 

An effort is also being made to 
provide the trainees with a clear 
understanding of the social, po- 
litical, and economic climate with- 
in which American business firms 
operate. The program is designed 
to provide each participant with a 
sound basis for re-examining the 
management principles of his own 
country or his own business es- 
tablishment. 

The JETS arrived in the United 
States on May 18 and spent their 
first three weeks living with Am- 
erican families. These family 
stays and the UMass program 
have been arranged by the Exper- 
iment in International Living, an 
educational, non-governmental, 
international organization which 
arranges overseas homestays as a 
means to international understand- 
ing. 



While in Amherst the group is 
living at Emerson House in the 
Southwest Residential College, 
When the program ends on July 31 
many will then visit other parts 
of the United States. Countries 
represented in the JET group are 
Austria, Belgium, Chile, France, 
Germany, Italy, Mexico, Nether- 
lands, and Switzerland. 

Nine members of the School 
of Business Administration faculty 
comprise the instructional staff 
of the program, which is being 
coordinated by Bertil Liander, as- 
sociate director of the school's 
Center for Business and Economic 
Research. 



The Campus Center contrac 
tor requests that all unneces- 
sary traffic through the build- 
ing be stopped so that work may 
continue without interruption. 

Thank you for your cooperat- 
ion. 



questions will be sought, accord- 
ing to Prof. Berger. One is how 
public policy should evolve in re- 
spect to the inter-basin transfer 
of water and the other involves 
those questions of environment 
and ecology that may be raised 
in future large diversions. 

The present diversion plan re- 
ferred to by Prof. Berger would 
increase the water supply potential 
for metropolitan Boston an estim- 
ated 25 per cent above present 
demand. 

The diversion currently being 
considered would be made through 
the Northfield Mountain Reser- 
voir, a pumped storage facility of 
North East Utilities. A bUl auth- 
orizing the diversion as outlined 
above is now before the General 
Court. Behind its introduction is 
the fact that the Boston area water 
use has increased approximately 
50 gallons per capita per day over 
the rate of consumption 25 years 
ago and that the Metropolitan Dis- 
trict Commission's Quabbin Res- 
ervoir is now only at 50 per cent 
capacity because of the 1962-66 
drought.

UMoss Athletics in Bod Spot 
Following Conference Rulings 

By BILL WESTFELDT 

Special to the Summer Statesman 

The Yankee Conference, so long dominated by UMass, has tried in the past year to bring the Red- 
men back to the level of the rest of its members. While Conference officials haven't succeeded too 
well, they have done a great job at exasperating the entire UMass athletic department and making 
the Yankee Conference as it is now set up, an impossible place for UMass to stay. 

It all started around four or 



five years ago, after a succession 
of UMass triumphs in football 
mainly, and also, in overall do- 
minance of the league. The Con- 
ference instituted a 20 formula 
of scholarships that prohibited any 
member school (they include the 
universities of New Hampshire, 
Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine and 
Connecticut in addition to UMass) 
from giving out more than 20 
athletic scholarships. 

It was a ruling that obstensibly 
would bring all the schools to the 
same level of competitiveness. 
All the rule accomplished really 
was to decrease the level of play 
in the Conference to the extent 
that it became a rarity to see any 
Yan-Con memlwr win outside the 
conference. 

That rule was further amended 
a couple of years later to limit 
scholarships to 20 in football and 
basketball combined and "let sch- 
ools seek their own level" in other 
sports. It has accomplished little 
other than give UMass, the only 
truly competitive conference sch- 
ool in New England a false hope 
that the Conference would be drif- 
ting away from the practice of 
penalizing success. 

Tlien came the events of the 
past year that have wiped out any 
chance of UMass satistftctorily 
Justifying its membership in the 



Yankee Conference. 

The main crux of this year's 
problems is a NCAA rule, the 
L6 rule. It, in essence, says 
that an athlete must have pre- 
dicted quality point average of 
1.6 to legally play a freshman 
sport. UMass discovered it had 
violated the rule in two instances 
in 1967, a time in which the UMass 
athletic department was in confu- 
sion due to the tragic death of 
assistant Athletic Director, Chet 
Gladchuck, and the retirement of 
department official Earl Lorden, 

Nevertheless UMass turned in 
itself for the violation, a minor 
violation at that. The Conference 
athletic directors, acting out of 
order, said that UMass could not 
participate in any post season 
NCAA tourneys for the violation, 
in effect a suspension. However, 
penalties to the Conference schools 
are made by the Conference Pre- 
sidents, not the athletic directors. 



ture professional talents were sus- 
pended and ruled ineligible for 
the 1970 football season because 
of violation of the 1,6 rule. As 
one Boston sports columnist com- 
mented, "Two very fine athletes 
are being penalized because of a 
university mistake, and a Confe- 
rence's vindictiveness." 

Subsequently, the Yankee Con- 
ference withdrew the Yankee Con- 
ference titles won by UMass the 
past year in basketball, football 
and goU. 

An added slap at its best member 
was made by the Conference in the 
early spring. UMass was approa- 
ched by ABC television, who sought 
to broadcast a regional contest 
between Boston College and 
UMass, a telecast that brings the 
school $100,000. ABC wanted the 
game the first weekend of the sea- 
son, in September, a date that ne- 
cessitated a schedule change for 
UMass. They would have swit- 




Therefore, nothing was really done ched dates, playing Maine on the 



yet about the violation. 

The violation did not die here, 
however. In the past month, two 
football players, co-captain Nick 
McGarry, All-Yankee Conference 
end and a pro prospect, and Pier- 
re Marchando, All-New England 
choice at guard, and one of tiie 
area's most hi^ly regarded fu- 



old B.C. date and playing B.C. on 
the original Maine date. 

UMass was willing to pay Maine 
any amount that it would lose due 
to the switch, plus an additional 
sum of money. Maine and the 
Conference refused the offer and 
squelched the chance to gain Con- 
ference T.V. exposure. 




PIERRE MARCHANDO (67, here leading a UMass runner around end, was chosen for 
the All-New England team at guard a year ago. The Cambridge junior was ruled in- 
eligible for the 1970 season. 



NICK McGARRY, here garnering in a pass, was an out- 
standing pass receiver and bruising blocker during his 
two seasons as UMass tight end. McGarry, an elected 
UMass co-captain was recently ruled ineligible.

New England Journalism Schools

ions industry has a responsibility to do what it 
is uniquely equif^d to do - to educate in the 
liberal arts and sciences." 

While the philosophy of journalism teaching at 
UConn sounds much like that of the non-journ- 
alism teaching University of Vermont, UConn adds 
that '*The primary function of the Journalism 
Derartment Is to teach writing." 

The University of Massachusetts, that unit theo- 
retically similar to UConn's is, in practice, exactly 
the opposite. Although the departmental bulletin 
offers two programs from which to choose (an 
'*Academic'» and a "Professional") at UMass, the 
seven course offering from two flill-time and one- 
part-time faculty members, is entirely theoretical 
lournalism based on a knowledge of statistics. 
The student is expected to take English Department 
offerings to gain writing skill. 

No other department at any of the four univer- 
sities which offer journalism courses of their 
students. But. the University of Rhode Island is 
headed towara journalism course acceptance as 
satisfying the Social Science and Humanities re- 
quirement. 

According to reports from the six New England 
institutions, the newspaper field is the number 



one career target of journalism graduates. Public 
relations, Teaching and Business also take a number 
of the journalism-trained students. A small num- 
ber continue in graduate school. 

The structures of the journalism programs at 
each of the six universities are not likely to 
change significantly in the immediate future. Ac- 
cording to reports of administrators, neither the 
University of New Hampshire nor the University 
of Vermont plan any expansion into the field of 
journalism education. The University of Conn- 
ecticut does not plan to change the essential 
character of its operation, while the University 
of Massachusetts plans oidy to become an In- 
dependent department within the University's Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences. The University of 
Maine plans growth in "the direction of (1) media 
management and advertising and (2) broadcast- 
journalism." 

As a result, the New England resident who is 
searching for a "journalism" education is hard 
pressed to find a comprehensive program in his 
own tax- supported institutions. And the future 
gives little hope that the puMlc campuses will be 
teaching it like it is to the journalists of tomorrow.

curt StrikesDown 
Birth Control Law 




By FRED KIERSTED 
Staff Reporter 

In a landmark decision, the 
first U.S. district court of app- 
eals Monday ruled the State's 
125-year-old birth control law 
to be unconstitutional aiKl over- 
turned the conviction of birth 
control crusader William Baird 
for passing out contraceptive 
foam at a rally on Boston Uni- 
versity in 1968. 

Baird, who has been fighting 
the Massachusetts law for the 
past three years, called the 
court's ruling, "An invitation 
for the State to join the 20th 
century." 

District Attorney Garrett H. 
Bryne, after consulting with 
State Attorney General Robert 
H. Quinn, yesterday announced 
that he would appeal the court's 
ruling to the U. S. Supreme 
Court. But this decision did 
not displease Baird. 

Speaking for his client, 
Baird's lawyer said yesterday 
that he would welcome the chal- 
lenge of the court's ruling, be- 
cause the Supreme Court will 
surely uphold the lower decis- 
ion, and will finally put a final 
end to the ancient law." 

Attorney Joseph Balllro add- 
ed, "We'd love the Supreme 
Court to rule on this, and then 
overturn every birth control 
and abortion statute in the Uni- 
ted States." 

Baird was sentenced to 90 
days In Suffolk County Jail for 
giving a package of vaginal 
foam to an unmarried woman at 
a 1967 Boston University de- 
monstration, and was later re-

demonstration in 1968. (Daily Collegian photo.) 



leased on $1,000 bail after ser- 
ving 35 days in jail. 

The Court observed, "If the 
legislature Is truly concerned 
with deterring fornication, it 
may increase the statuatory 
penalty to mark Its measure of 
concern. It may not do so, 
however, by making the penalty 
a oersonaUy and socially un- 



desired pregnancy." 

At a news conference after the 
court's decision was made pub- 
lic, Baird, an announced can- 
didate for the U. S. Senate, 
declared, "Up until today, there 
were those who called me a 
sexual pied piper, but our case 
has allowed women to have free- 
dom of choice."

Enrollment Off 

Venman Cites Problem 
For Summer Session 

By ALBERT BENSON 
Asst. Managing Editor 

In what may be a UMass first, the University may suffer from a lack 
of student enrollment this summer. While the projected enrollment 
for the summer school program is 3100 students, the actual number now 
registered is closer to 2200. "The lagging enrollment", according to 
Dr. William Venman, director of the program, "is due primarily to 
the availability of only one summer session." 

Because the second session begins in July, many students can't 
attend school, according to Venman. To do so they would have to 
give up jobs, break travel and vacation plans, and disrupt any other 
activities that they were engaged in. There is, however, a possibility 
of attracting more students. 

The job market this summer is very poor and many students are 
having trouble finding jobs.' At the beginning of July many of these 
students will have given up the idea of finding jobs. "We hope," 
Dr. Venman stated, "to attract people who are having employment 
troubles to the University." "We want to offer them an alternative to 
vagrancy," Dr. Venman said. 

In order to convince more students to come to the summer session, 
the Umiversity has launched an advertising campaign consistin^of pam- 
phlets, brochures, and bulletins announcing the program. Among the 
more innovative aspects of this campaign is a series of public service 
radio messages. These messages described the academic, social, 
and cultural offerings of UMass and invite students to enroll. 

Three different ads were sent to 12 radio stations throughout the 
state. Particular emphasis was given to the Boston area. Cape Cod, 
Fall River Fitchburg, and other cities and regions were also included! 
Neil Stroul, the administrative assistant who made up the message 
said that he wasn't yet sure of their effects. 

The summer session begins on July 13 and ends on Aug. 21 While 
there will be a full offering of courses, some language sections and 
zoology sections may be cut. Registration will be held in Boyden 
Gym on Monday.

Fired English Teacher 
MayTal<eCase to Court 



Beginning Next Week, 
The Statesman 
Will Publish onTues.andThurs 



A Northampton HighSchool Eng- 
lish teacher who was fired by 
that town's School Committee last 
week for allegedly painting strike 
fists on school property last May 
yesterday announced that he will 
respond publicly to his dismissal 
by the end of the week. 

John Wright who has taught at 
Northampton High School for the 
past three years, said he would 
either take his case before the 
Massachusetts Teacher's Associ- 
aUon or would go before North- 



ampton District Court. 

He contends that the School Com- 
mittee, after a marathon six hour 
meeting, decided last Tuesday to 
fire Wright, because it felt his 
actions "were contrary to both 
the spirit and the letter of school 
regulations." And the board also 
reasoned, "The teacher, by his 
actions, encouraged his students to 
adopt illegal and destructive means 
of protest in the name of polit- 
ical actions." 

Wright has delayed responding 



to the specific charges in pub- 
lic, but will meet with the press 
later this week to discuss the ev- 
ents surrounding his dismissal. 
But a group of nearly 50 Nor- 
thampton residents, many of them 
high school students, rallied behind 
the fired teacher last week. They 
marched on the school committee 
meeting last week demanding that 
Ul charges against Wright be drop- 
)ed.

BUCHWALD 

Government Success 



WASHINGTON - Despite everything you hear about the government, 
there still is plenty of money around for projects. The only trouble is, 
you can't get the money if you have a plan that works. You must have 
one that no one is quite sure about. 

A vice president of a university system in the Northeast told me 
about this the other day when he applied for money for a program to 
run summer schools for students who needed extra help to get into 
college. He told me the meeting went something like this: 



"Now Mr. Haas, from our records it appears that you*re applying 
for a grant of $500,000 to run a summer school project for students 
hoping to keep up in college this fall.' 

"That's correct. We did it last year, and it was tremendously suc- 
cessful. We only had a drop-out rate of 6%." 

"Oh, dear me. Then this is not a pilot project,*' 

"No, it's not. We know it works." 

"What a shame." 

"What do you mean what a shame?" 

"Well, if this were a pilot project the government would be happy 
to fifiance it. We'd be very interested in laiowing what could come of 
it. But we can't very well give money to something that's l)een proven.

»viiv I lie lieii ii.'' 

"Mr. Haas, we': 
providing it's iffy, 
work. Congress would have a fit." 

"I still don't imder stand why." 

•'I'm trying to explain it to you. The government has no trouble 
getting money from Congress for study programs. It doesn't matter 
how much it costs to study a program; we can get the funds. But once 
we ask for money for a program that has been proven successful. 
Congress will be committed to it, and nobody wants that, do they?'* 

"Suppose that I request the money for a study project. Could I 
get it then?" 

•'But you already told me that it had worked last summer. There's 
no sense having a study of it, if it works." 

•'I'm not trying to be difficult, but this is a very important project. 
We are taking in people this year who are going to find it tough sled- 
ding to keep up in the fall unless they have some remedial work." 

"It's not our fault that your program worked last summer, Mr. Haas. 
Had it failed we would have given you a blank check to try it a dif- 
ferent way. But we're not here to dole out taxpayers' money for pro- 
grams that have succeeded. 

"Just the other day a superintendent of a public system in the Midwest 
tried a visual- reading program for his state which turned into a dis- 
aster. The machines didn't work, the teachers couldn't handle them and 
the students lost interest after the first five m.nutes. 

"Did we cut him off? We did not. We gave him another $10 million 
to find out why he failed. And we're ready to pour in another $10 
million if he doesn't come up with answers. The whole department 
is excited by the failure,'" 

"Is there any possible way of getting the $500,000 knowing what you 
know about my program?" 

"I hardly think so, Mr. Haas. You've made a mess of things as it 
is. Our motto in the government is 'Nothing fails like success.' *'

"Earth People's Park is people 
trying to get together on pieces 
of free land, open to anyone will-

with each other and with their 
environment." 

This is how a spokesman for a 
Pittsfield group involved in or- 
ganizing area support for the bu- 
ilding of a Berkeley, California 
commune describes the goal of 
his project. 

He continues, "Right now, peo- 
ple from all over the country are 
trying to raise the money need- 
ed to buy the land, and we've set 
up an office in Pittsfield to serve 
Western Massachusetts residents 
wishing to help out." 

The Pittsfield group hopes to 



raise $5,000 by September, and 
group members acknowledge that 
they have a long way to go. 

"But," one member says, "we- 
're working on a number of fund- 
raising ideas, centered on a rock- 
festival and several concerts. One 
festival is now scheduled for July 
24- 27 on a commune in Berkshire 
Country." 

The group will release further 
information on this and other con- 
certs in the upcoming weeks, spo- 
kesmen say. 

Members of the Pittsfield group 
ask anyone wishing to contribute 
to the People's Park or to help 
in the plarming of the group's ac- 
tivities to write the group at 193 
Dewey Ave., in Pittsfield.

For the past week this reporter has been interviewing swing-shift freshmen, trying to detemine how 
they think and feel about their new environment. Ranging from passive acceptance to mild forms of 
rebellion, the students generally view their present and future involvements with the University with 
guarded optimism. 

Many students felt that they were Miss BerestecW : I like the cour-

college in the summer and a large 
University In the spring. While 
some thought their courses were 
too large and long, others found 
them dynamic and interesting. 

A good example of this diversity 
of point of view can be found in a 
conversation with Miss Janice 
Berestecki of Lynne field, Mass. 

Statesman: How do you feel 
about being placed in the swing- 
shift program? 

Miss Berestecki: 1 like the in- 
formal atmosphere. It gives peo- 
ple a chance to meet each other. 
It gives you a chance to make 
friends. I think that it's impor- 
tant to know people, so that when 
you come back in the spring, you 
won't get lost in the hurrying and 
the crowds. 

Statesman: What do you think 
about the classes and professors 
that you've had so far?

the transition from high school 
to college. 

Another student, Lynn O'Mally 
of Leominster, had a completely 
different point of view. 

Statesman: What are your gen- 
eral impressions of UMass and 
the swingshift program? 
Miss O'Mally: I think that much 



points ofviewwith Miss Berestecki of the swing-shift program is ar- 



was Bob Johnston. 

Statesman: How do you feel 
about where you are living for the 
summer program? 
Mr. Johnston: 1 don't like the idea 
of being segregated into the most 
remote section of campus. I do 
like having freshmen living to- 
gether. I think it gives people a 
chance to get to meet each other 
and form relationships that will 
last throughout the year. 

Statesman: Do you feel that 
the University is overly paternal- 
istic in its attitude towards fresh- 
men? 

Mr. Johnston: No not at all. I 
feel that students need a little 



tificial. I think that the whole 
idea of living with other fresh- 
men is a waste. I think that it 
places you in forced relationships. 
Most of the kids are bored out of 
their minds. On weekends every- 
body either gets stoned or smash- 
ed. It's ridiculous, just ridicul- 
ous! 

Statesman: How do you feel 
about living on Orchard Hill? 
Miss O'Mally: I feel that it is 
another mistake. It's like living 
in an isolated castle. They're 
trying to keep us in high school. 
I feel that the whole program is 
inhibiting. 



Books 
For Sale 



Two books by University history 
Professor Stephen B. Oates were 
published in June. 

They are "To Purge This Land 
With Blood: A Biography of John 
Brown" and "Visions of Glory: 
Texans on the Southwestern Fron- 
tier." 

The former, published by Har- 
per and Row, is the first full- 
scale biography of John Brown 
based on original research in over 
six years. According to a Pub- 
lisher's Weekly review. "To Pur- 
ge This Land With Blood" draws 
a parallel "between the tragedy of 
John Brown and the passionate 
militancy of the Black Panther 
movement today." 

"Visions of Glory", published 
by the University of Oklahoma 
Press, is a "revisionist'* critique 
of the American frontier character 
as expressed in the Southwestern 
part of the United States. 

According to Oates, "In some 
ways, 'Visions of Glory' is an anti- 
war book, not because it is a 
polemic against violence, but be- 
cause it narrates the evidence of 
tlie violent and savage stain in 
our frontier heritage." 

The author is a native Texan 
who holds a Ph.D. from the Uni- 
versity of Texas and taught at 
the Texas University campus in 
Arlington before coming to UMass 
Amherst in 1968. His previous 
books are "Confederate Cavalry 
West of the River," in 1961; "Rip 
Ford's Texas." in 1963 and "Re- 
public of Texas", in 1968.

WritingForMa rks&Coin 

Drugs and pollution were popular subjects of feature articles pub- 
lished by University writers enroUed in English 339, "Article Writing", 
this spring. 

Each of the 13 students who successfully completed the three- 
credit course placed at least one article in a newspaper or magazine 
during the semester. As a group, they published 18 pieces within a 
nine-week submission period. 

Their instructor of Dr. Dario Politella, associate professor of Eng- 
lish, who is a free-lance writer and magazine editor in his own right. 

Six pieces were written on water pollution; two each on sports and 
drugs. Other subjects included spiritualism, conscientious objectors 
and the draft, apathetic students, the social fraternity system, student 
employment problems in the Amherst area, journalism education in 
New England, student biography and travel. 

Income for the student authors ranged from $4 to $45. Publications 
ranged from the Hansen (Pa.) Shopping Guide to the prestigious Editor

The course is taught as a tutorial experience, rather than as a lec- 
ture class. The students meet with the instructor weekly for periods 
of individual instruction and discussion. Also enrolled are students from 
Smith College and Amherst College. 

Strike Groups Busy 
WithSummer Activities 

Five anti-war groups at UMiss are currently engaged in activities 
concerned with the issues of Lie student strike. Included among the 
groups are: the Strike Committee, the Continuing Summer Organiz- 
ation, the Mobe Committee the Regional Information Headquarters, 
and the Movement for a New Congress. 

The strike committee, which is currently under the leadership of 
Dr. Howard Gadlin, is working on programs for swing-shift freshmen. 
The programs are designed to educate and inform swing- shifters 
about the war. 

The Continuing Summer Organization, a group currently under the 
leadership of Harvey Kahalas, was formed at the end of the year to 
continue the activities of the strike during the summer. Among the 
activities of this group are forming student groups to work in the 
communities, sending speakers to church, civic and social meetings, 
and distributing pamphlets and brochures. 

The Mobe Committee has many of the same functions as the Con- 
tinuing Summer Organization. It helps to co-ordinate canvassing 
activities 'n different conununities. It is also in contact with different 
strike orgo aizations throughout the country. 

The Regional Information Headquarters, which is under the direct- 
ion of Miss Roundy, co-ordinates all of the strike activities in Western 
Mass. 

The Movement for a New Congress, as its name implies, is a group 
which seeks to elect members to congress which are sympathetic to 
the anti-war pcjint of view.

Hampshire College 

The Birth 
Of A School 



Hampshire College will open its doors to its 
first class this fall, as the Pioneer Valley's 
fifth institution of higher education is born. 

The product of faculty, students and adminis- 
trators from UMass, Amherst, Mt. Holyoke, 
and Smith Colleges working together allowed this 
private liberal arts school to establish itself in 
in far less time than is normally needed to found 
a school from scratch. 

Sprawling across the hills of rural South Am- 
herst the school is located in the heart of the 
five college area, and its faculty will join their 
counterparts in the already established five College 
Cooperation program. 



Tod - An old farmhouse serves as the school's central building, housing the ad- 
ministration. Bottom - Construction will continue into this fall, as the school's new 
buildings are completed. Right - The school is a blend between the new and the old 
of the Pioneer Valley.

The Massachusetts Summer Statesman 



The Summer School Farce 

When the University's Summer School opens its six week session next week, the 2500 
students enrolled will find fewer courses, fewer student services and fewer extra-curricu- 
lar activities than were provided by last Summer's meager program. And. as if the students 
won't be handicapped enough by these shortages, the program itself covers only half of 
the summer, a fact which accounts for its poor enrollment. 

This year's market for summer jobs has been so tight that finding a decent paying job 
for just half the summer is nearly an impossibility. As a result, many students who other- 
wise would have attended the Summer Session chose instead to work throughout the sum- 
mer and to attend night classes at schools near their jobs. 

And, as a result of the low enrollment, the summer student activities tax will net less 
money than last year, and thus there will be fewer student activities this summer. 

But the reason for these problems is simply that the State government cut last year's 
UMass budget so severely that a full-scale Summer program this year was made impossi- 
ble. And the funds available for even the shortened Summer School are so low that most 
faculty members chose to write or to travel or teach elsewhere for the Summer, rather 
than participate in a half-funded, ill concieved Summer program at UMass. 

There will, no doubt, be a series of criticisms directed at Summer Session director Dr. 
William C. Venman for his handling of the program by Summer students, but. under the 
financial circumstances. the administration has done the best job it could salvaging some- 
thing for half the summer. , u « e 

But they shouldn't have to cut corners and scrounge in order to stage half a bummer 
Program. If the legislature is not willing to grant the University the funds necessary for a 
full scale, meaningful summer session, it should give the University nothing. As it now 
stands, the Summer program is a farce. 



The Yankee Conf. Farce 



The Yankee Conference gave UWass a unique choice a few weeks ago. In effect the 
Conference told the athletic department, either make a couple of athletes uneligible, or 
the Conference would advise the other members to refuse to schedule UMass. UMass 
therefore suspended football stars Nick McGarry and Pierre Marchando, declaring them 
ineligible for the coming football season. 

It was obviously a difficult decision to make. But we sincerely question UMass' 
choice. Obviously the threat of breaking off of scheduling was a serious one. It could in 
effect cripple the school's athletic program financially. But we sincerely question both 
the sincerity of the threat and the wisdom of the decision. 

First, it was not the players fault that they were ineligible. They were never told that 
they were playing illegally, never had any inkling that they were an offending party. Yet 
they are the ones that are suffering the most. Both Marchando and McGarry were pro pros- 
pects, both were looking forward to banner senior years in efforts to improve their posi- 
tion in the eyes of pro scouts. These hopes are shattered. 

Secondly, it is questionable how well financially the other member schools would do 
without UMass on their schedules. The Redmen are the class of the Conference in all 
sports, and the only drawing card in the Conference. One example: New Hampshire draws 
no more than 250 people for home basketball games. This year they had over 2000 for the 
UMass game. 

We feel the UMass athletic council, since UMass had already been censuredseverely 
by having to give up all their conference titles of the past year, should have tested the 
Conference decision. The Yankee Conference is an inoperable body as it is right now. 
Perhaps new members will be admitted, but that is no certainty. 

We feel it would be better to be an independent than be in a Conference made up of 
such small time operatives. We feel that the confusion in scheduling would be acceptable 
in light of getting rid of the jealousy-ridden backward members of the conference. 

UMass would not have a lot of trouble making up a new schedule. It has a national 
reputation in football, basketball, baseball and lacrosse, only plays three conference 
schools in hockey anyway, and doesn t need the conference in other sports. 

And finally, the careers of two superb athletes are worth more than the loss of trips 
to Orono, Storrs. Burlington, Durham and Kingston.

Plane 



Talk 



WASHINGTON - No one is quite certain if and when the United 
States will sell Israel the 125 fighter planes it's been asking for. The 
rumor in Washington is that the policy for the moment will be not to 
give Israel any new planes, but to replace those shot down by the enemy. 
If this is true, we can expect to see a decided change in the commun- 
iques emanating from Tel Aviv and the Arab capitals. 

They may go somethng like this: 



Summer publication at the University of Massachusetts, the Statesman is in

artd bi-weekly from June 24 to August 30 



TEL AVIV, July 10 - Military 
spokesmen for the Israeli air for- 
ce announced today that their pla- 
nes were attacked along the Suez 
Canal. Twenty- seven Israeli pla- 
nes were shot down, the spokes- 
men said, and 30 more limped back 
to their bases. This was the lar- 
gest loss of Israeli combat air- 
craft ever recorded. 

CAIRO, July 11 - Egyptian army 
officials angrily denied shooting 
down any Israeli planes in yes- 
terday's battle over the Suez Ca- 
nal. "Our pilots," said Gen. 
Gamal Emer, "missed the Is^ae- 
li planes by miles. 

"We have aerial photos show- 
ing all Israeli planes returned 
safely without so much as a bul- 
let hole in them." 

Gen. Emer said he was also very 
disappointed in the new Russian- 
type SAM missiles which failed to 
hit the Israeli attackers. "It's ap- 
parent there is no hope we will 
ever shoot down an Israeli plane." 



HAIFA, Israel, July 15 - A sneak 
attack along the Syrian border by 
Israeli fighters proved to t)e a 
catastrophe, Israeli sources said 
today. The high command revealed 
that Syrian planes had shot down 
23 Israeli fighters, bringing Is- 
raeli losses for the week to 50 
planes. Gen. Mordacai Rashnik 
has been relieved of his command 
for allowing these defeats to take 
place. 



DAMASCUS, July 16 - Syrians 
demonstrated in the streets today 
against Israeli claims that Syrian 
fighter planes had shot down 23 
Israeli planes in yesterday's dog 
fight over the Golan Heights. 

At a giant rally in Damascus 
Square, Arab nationalist leaders 
introduced several Syrian pilots 
who claimed they had turned tall 
as soon as the Israeli planes ap- 
proached. 

"We did not engage them in 
battle," Lt. Abdullah Yafed told 
the screaming crowd. "The Zion- 
ist pigs did not lose any planes. 
They shot down five of ours." 

The crowd cheered this news and 
then burned down ihe Jordanian 
Eml)assy. 



TEL AVIV, July 25 - Prime 
Minister Golda Meir went on Is- 
raeli television tonight to regret- 
fully announce that 30 more Is- 
raeli planes had been shot down by 
French-built Mirages over Libya. 
This was the farthest penetration 
Israeli planes had made. When it 
was pointed out after the broad- 
cast that France had not yet de- 
livered the Mirages to Libya, Mrs. 
Meir said, "I made a mistake. 
Our planes ran out of gas." 



AMMAN, Jordan July 26 - King 
Hussein demandea today that the 
United Nations take over the count- 
ing of Israeli planes lost inaction. 
Charging Israel with duplicity, the 
King said, "We can never have 
peace in the Middle East as long 
as Israel keeps claiming plane 
losses it has never had." 



CAIRO, Egypt, Aug. 1 - Presi- 
dent Nasser and the Soviet mili- 
tary command announced jointly 
that all Arab planes had been gro- 
unded indefinitely and all anti- 
aircraft guns had been silenced 
until further notice, to prevent 
the Israelis from announcing any 
more plane losses. 



SOMEWHERE IN THE NEGEV, 
Aug. 2 - Foreign correspondents 
were taken on a guided tour of 
this top-secret Israeli air base in 
the Negev, today. The base, which 
is the home of 45 fighters, was 
completely empty of aircraft. 

A reporter asked where the 
planes were and the colonel in 
charge of the tour said, "They 
were all lost this morning to 
small- arms fire over the Dead 
Sea." 

When it was pointed out that 
Israel has claimed to have lost 
125 planes in three weeks, the ex- 
act number it had requested from 
the United States in the first 
place, the colonel replied, "Oy - 
what a coincidence." 



Chancellor Outlines Personal ROTC Stand 



To The Editor: 

I write to respond to your news 
article and editorial on ROTC 
in the Wednesday, July 1st issue 
of the SUMMER STATESMAN. 

At the April meeting, the Board 
of Trustees voted to authorize 
the Administration to notify the 
Defense Department thai the Uni- 
versity wishes to renegotiate its 
ROTC contracts. 

Then, at the June meeting in 
Wareham, the Board approved the 
following additional recommenda- 
tions of the Faculty Senate: 

1. ::The academic rank of Lectu- 
rer ordinarily be conferred upon 
officer personnel appointed to the 
Departments of MiUtary and Air 
Science, except that the rank of 
Professor shall be conferred on 
the Senior Officer." 

2. "Courses with substantial 'aca- 
demic area' content (be) offered 
by the appropriate academic de- 
partments and taught by the regu- 
lar faculty. These courses would 
carry academic credit and would 
be open to non-ROTC students 
also." 

3. "Courses of indoctrination, and/ 
or drill, and/or training in mili- 
tary skills (be) taught by military 
personnel and carry no academic 
credit." 



4. The Administration be autho- 
rized to claim full Federal fun- 
ding for the ROTC programs. 

The first Maginnis amendment 
referred to the category of "cour- 
ses with diffuse 'academic area' 
(and also technical) content span- 
ning several disciplines, and also 
courses concerned primarily with 
military tactics and strategy, and/ 
or specialized military history." 
The amendment added these words 
to the Senate recommendation: 
"These courses would be offered 
by the members of the Division 
of Military and Air Science sup- 
plemented by cooperating faculty 
members of other departments of 
appropriate disciplines. Acade- 
mic credit will be granted on the 
same basis and criteria as applied 
to all courses University-wide." 

The second Maginnis amendment 
permits the continuation of the 
present four-year and two-year 
options, whereas the Faculty Se- 
nate hsd recommended only the 
two-year program with the added 
obligation of an extra summer 
camp. 

1 should point out that these 
ROTC proposals were considered 
at several meetings of not only 
the sub-committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy but the full 



Board of Trustees at which hours 
were devoted to presentation of 
arguments by both pro and anti 
ROTC spokesmen. The Faculty 
Senate proposals were explored 
in detail. After the presentation 
of all arguments at the May meet- 
ing, the Board of Trustees decided 
to postpone a vote on the various 
proposals until the June meeting 
to allow members further time to 
study the minutes and the volu- 
minous documentation. 

At the June meeting, after con- 
siderable discussion of the propo- 
sals, I was asked by one of the 
trustees to present my personal 
views. I began by calling the at- 
tention of the Board to the Faculty 
Senate recommendations, but since 
I was asked my views as an indi- 
vidual, I stated that there were 
two points which I would modify 
in the Senate recommendations. 
First, I thought, in the interest of 
fair play , that courses to be 
taught by military personnel should 
have the opportunity to be CONSI- 
DERED for credit, toother words, 
course outlines and proposals 
would be submitted in the usual 
way to the Senate Academic Mat- 
ters Committee for its review and 
recommendation to the Faculty Se- 
nate. Secondly, I saw no reason 



to discontinue the present four 
and two-year options. I reminded 
the Board that I had publicly men- 
tioned these two departures from 
Senate recommendation on two pu- 
blic occasions - once at the meeting 
of the Faculty Senate on April 
30th and then again at one of the 
ROTC confrontation sessions in 
Dickinson Hall during the strike. 
I added that the original report 
of the Senate Military Affairs Sub- 
Committee had recommended that 
courses taught by military person- 
nel could be granted credit if the 
Academic Affairs Committee so- 
recommended, but that this pro- 
vision had been reversed by the 
full Senate by a margin of one 
vote. 1 fail to see how this "be- 
littles" the Senate, tocidentally, 
the tapes of the Board meeting 
are available for anyone to hear. 
Let us examine for a moment 
the significance of the two modifi- 
cations which Trustee Maginnis 
suggested. The first would merely 
provide the OPPORTUNITY for 
military instructors to present 
their courses for approval but 
credit would only be granted if 
the Senate Academic Matters Com- 
mittee and the Senate approved 
credit for these specific courses. 



Liberal College Prexys 
Having A Tough Time 

By FRED W. HECHINGER 
From the N. Y. Times 

"In the summer of 1968, when you asked me to consider the presidency of Stanford, I did so with 
the expectation that significant progress could and would be made at the national level in healing some 
of the deep divisions which beset our country . . . Instead, these divisions have deepened. The gulf 
between the campus community and society at large has widened, particularly in the past two months." 

With these words, Kenneth S. 
Pitzer, a noted chemist and a 
university administrator with con- 
siderable experience, resigned as 
president of Stanford University a 
week ago. His analysis of the 
university crisis echoed the ju- 
dgment of other college officials 
that there is a link between dis- 
order on the campuses and the 
disarray of national policies. It 
could also signal a new trend - 
replacement of liberal administra- 
tors by "law and order" conser- 
vatives. 

It may be irrational that the uni- 
versity presidency has become 
embattled, since the academic lea- 
ders are powerless to right na- 
tional wrongs; but as the visible 
symbol of power on campus, they 
are the target most likely to be 
hit by the reflex reaction both of 
student anger and of the counter, 
actions of potential donors, alumni 
and the conservative town that tra- 
ditionally is no admirer of the aca- 
demic gown. 

The future of the college pre- 
sidency might be less puzzling if 
the departing presidents could be 
described as autocrats or react- 
ionaries, and thus justifiable tar- 
gets of student wrath. But reality 
tells a different story. 

The pattern appears to have been 
set by the dismissal of Dr. Clark 
Kerr from the powerful presidency 
of the University of California 
several years before the epidemic 
began to spread. Dr. Kerr was 
fired by Gov. Ronald Reagan; but 
his position had already been un- 
dermined by a crossfire from ra- 
dical students, and reactionary 
politicians. Yet he had not only 
been one of the staunchest defend- 
ers of academic freedom iHit was 
one of the earliest activists ag- 
atost the war to Vietnam. 

Here are other pieces of the 
jigsaw puzzle: 

- President Nathan M. Pusey 
is hastening his retirement from 
Harvard by at least a year or two 
after he described the past year 



as one of the most dismal in the . 
university's history. 

- At Brandeis University, Mor- 
ris Abram found that his back- 
ground as a fighting liberal, with 
high marks as a civil rights 
righter to the South, gave him no 
lasttog credit. His efforts to cre- 
ate a participatory democracy fa- 
iled; he is back practictog law. 

- Presidents Robert Weaver, a 
black liberal, and Joseph McMur- 
ray, a liberal Catholic have re- 
cently resigned from the presid- 
encies of important units of New 
York's City University. 

- At Hunter College, Mrs. Ja- 
cqueline Grennan Wesder, a former 
qun who left the order because 
she wanted to enter the national 
fight for greater social justice to 
education, found herself embattled 
until she reluctantly took to the 
courts and the police to keep the 
college open, 

- Chancellors Roger Heyns, at 
Berkeley, and Charles E. Young, 
at U.C.L.A., remain the pawns of 
a squeeze play between the radi- 
cal students and the university's 
regents under the domination of 
Governor Reagan. 

Radical students prefer react- 
ionary presidents because they 
make it easier to rally moderate 
students and faculty to their cause 
agatost "the repressive system." 
Many radicals of the left believe 
that they can gain power only to 
the wake of rightwing outrages. 

What is the likely result? 

Some exceptional presidents, 
such as Kingman Brewster at Yale 
will probably be able to retato a 
measure of control through per- 
sonal charisma and diplomatic sk- 
ill. 

But the over- all picture is not 
encouraging. University presid- 
ents of the future, said Mr. Pit- 
zer in his farewell appearance 
before the press, may have pre- 
sidents, he said, might have to be 



more of a mix of political and 

government leaders. 

These are euphemisms for 
'*law-and-order" leadership. And 
at least two large universities al- 
ready have turned to presidents 
who follow a "law-and-order" po- 
licy. 

President Samuel I. Hayakawa 
has apparently succeeded at San 
Francisco State where his liberal 
predecessors became the radicals* 
sacrificial lambs. The State Un- 
iversity of New York at Buffalo 
which had been torn by strife last 
year, recently appototed Dr. Rob- 
ert ketter, a youthful civil en- 
gtoeer who was hailed by the trus- 
tees and described by many stu- 
dents and faculty members as a 
"law-and-order" president. 

Perhaps the radicals' contempt 
for liberals, along with disunity 
among faculty members, has made 
it toevitable that trustees and po- 
tential benefactors demand increa- 
stogly a strong hand at the helm. 
With the decltoing stock market, 
on top of disaffected donors, the 
fiscal pressures add fuel to the 
conservative, if not outright react- 
ionary, counteractivists. 

to the end, the repressive va- 
riety of "law-and-order" is likely 
to turn the campus into even more 
of a battlefield, with the radicals 
gaining new allies and with guer- 
rilla warfare escalating. But it is 
also already clear that indecisive 
liberals with visions of particip- 
atory democracy will be unable to 
end the turmoil. 

to the view of realistic observers 
of recent conflicts, the best hope 
is in politically and academically 
liberal presidents who are deter- 
mined to use the legitimate power 
of the law and of their office to 
maintain order and to protect aca- 
demic freedom against coercion 
from the left on-campus, and the 
right off- campus. 



The second modification would 
permit the continuance of courses 
given during the Freshman-Sopho- 
more years, which, by the way, 
would also be allowed under the 
Faculty Senate provisions for 
no credit military courses. Under 
the Maginnis suggestion, if the 
military people wish to submit the 
course outlines for these courses 
to the Senate for study, they may 
or may not be approved for cre- 
dit. The significant point is that 
both of the Maginnis modifications 
would require Senate approval for 
the granting of academic credit. 
Finally, you state in your edito- 
rial of July 1st: "However, he ne- 
glected to mention the Faculty 
Senate at a later date unanimously 
reaffirmed its support for the pro- 
posal expressly to show its unity 
before the Board." It is true that 
on May 14th., the Faculty Senate 
passed a motion to urge the Ad- 
ministration to expedite the nego- 
tiations with the Armed Forces, 
but it does not necessarily fol- 
low from this that the Senate 
unanimously reaffirmed its sup- 
port of every detail of the ROTC 
proposals.

''Getting Straight" 
Isn't Wortli It 



Valley Peace Center Provides 
Draft Counseling For AreaMales 



By DANIEL MADDEN 
Staff Reporter 

The first review of this picture appeared in the culture sectionof the 
New York Times about three weeks ago. Its author Dwight MacDonoW 
nanned it calling it "a movie that's not a movie/' By that I gathered 
Uut he meant that GETTING STRAIGHT was projected on a movie 
screen Init lacked any merit as a motion picture. Well, I knew Dwight 
to be a grumpy old man, not in the forefront of cinema criticism, so 
I accept^ this opinion with skepticism Besides the movie featured 
Elliott Gould, star-heroofBOB& TED& CAROL & ALICE and M*A*S*H^ 
If he turned in his usual masterful performance, that alone would be 
worth seeing. I thought. -^, . . . 

I was wrong GETTING STRAIGHT is a mistake. It's not so bad 
as to be a disaster, there are about ten or twelve litUe gems scattered 
indiscriminately about the two- hours-plus of the movie, but that s 
not enough to justify GETTING STRAIGHT'S existance. 

The movie may have some value in the future as a near complete 
catalogue of the campus cliches of 1970. The're all here, from the 
ex-general turned college president facing up to a college "ot ^Uhf 
well turned grin of courage to that nicety of racist and sexist subjlety. 
"Is this the first Ume you've made it with a black chick" asked by a 
"black chick," naturally. . ^. .. . * k 

Gould who does his best to portray an early sixties activist whose 
copped-out to get his Master's, is good enough, but litUe believability 
can be gotten into a supposed freak with money for morality and a sex 
drive for principles. He gets one moment of glory when be freaks 
during his Master's oral exam, but other than that he projects the appeal 

° U Tou^re a Gould follower, you should probably see GETTING 
STRAIGHT If not. and you just want to see a very talented actor m 
action, take in the aforementioned M*A*S*H, you'll at least see a 
picture of minor genius. 



By ALBERT BENSON 
Asst. Managing Editor 

The Valley Peace Center in 
Amherst, from 2 to 4 every day, 
provides free counseling and edu- 
cational information for all those 
seeking advice on the draft. "Our 
aim", stated Mrs. Cynthia Nichols, 
one of the center's workers, "is 
to educate as many people as pos- 
sible about the draft and to help 
them find alternatives to military 
service. 

When questioned on the effect 
of the center on incoming fresh- 
men, Mrs. Nichols, repUed that 
most new students have not been 
away from home long enou^ to 
develop a critical attitude toward 



the war and to feel a need for 
draft counseling. 

"Many", she said, "felt that 
since they had deferments for four 
years, they didn't have to worry 
about the war or draft." "Put- 
ting things off", she continued, "is 
no solution. Students must begin 
preparing for the draft in their 
freshman year. They must begin 
gathering information for physical 
and psychiatric deferments. They 
must begin exploring the possibi- 
lities of forms of alternative ser- 
vice. Since draft deferments for 
students might end next year", 
Mrs. Nichols continued, "fresh- 
men will have to begin thinking 



about the draft soon." 

In response to this uncritical 
attitude, the center has gathered 
much educational information. A-' 
mong the topics included in this 
research are: ways and means of 
obtaining a conscientious objec- 
tor's status, methods of obtaining 
Canadian citizenship, forms of al- 
ternative service such as VISTA 

and The Peace Corps, and how 
to miuce connections with resis- 
tance groups in other countries. 
The center also has speakers 
who talk before various groups 
on and off campus about the war. 
The center was founded in Octo- 
ber 1967 as a response to the war 
in Vietnam.

WASHINGTON - Conscientious 
objection to the draft must be held 
"with the strength of traditional 
religious conviction" even though 
it need not be part of any re- 
ligious belief, Selective Service 
Director Curtis W. Tarr said yes- 
terday.

which the belief is held," the di- 
rector said. 

In a memorandum to local draft 
lx)ards, Tarr attempted to inter- 
pret the Supreme Court decision 
last month which said conscient- 
ious objectors do not have to hold 
religious beliefs. 

Tarr, meantime, reaffirmed the 
policy that conscientious objector 
status cannot now be given to one 
whose claim is based on opposition 
to a particular war. 

The Supreme Court has sched- 
uled consideration of this issue 
after its summer recess.

5 to 



In June the 
3, that Elliot Welsh, 2d, 27, of 
Los Angeles was entitled to con- 
scientious objecfbr status even th- 
ough his aversion to war was by 
his own account, nonreligious. 

The court said persons with 
"deeply held" moral and ethical 
convictions against war are en- 
titled to draft exemption. 

Tarr said yesterday: "The 
registrant must demonstrate that 
his ethical moral convictions were 
gained through training, study, con- 
templation or other activity comp- 
arable in rigor and dedication to 
the processes by which traditional 
religious convictions are formu- 



lated." 

But he said applicants need not 
believe in a "traditional" God or 
a "supreme being" in order to 
qualify. 

Among Tarr's points for the 
draft l)oards were these: 

- "The registrant's conscient- 
ious objection to war must stem 
from his moral, ethical or re- 
ligious beliefs about what is right 
and should be done or and what 
is wrong and should be shunned, 
and he must hold these beliefs 
with the strength of traditional 
religious conviction." 

- "Board members should make 
every effort to weigh the claims of 
all registrants on the standard 
of sincerity, not giving particular 
advantage to a registrant who is 
learned or glib. The registrant 
need not use formal or traditional 
language."

Proxm ireSco res PentagonP reject 
As Major Appropriation Blunder 



1 



WASHINGTON (AP) - Senator William 
Proxmire asserted today that the Pentagon 
has spent more than $2- billion so far for 
a still secret electronic detection sys- 
tem tliat cannot tell the difference be- 
tween enemy sojdiers and innocent civil- 
ians. 

The Wisconsin Democrat said the sys- 
tem, an outgrowth of former Secretary of 
Defense Robert S. McNamara's plan to 
build an electronic wall across Vietnam, 
could eventually cost $20-billion or "al- 
most twice as much as we are spending 
on the ABM and four times as much as 
we have spent on the C-5A." 
TO SPEAK 

In a speech he plans to give in the 
Senate tomorrow, Mr. roxmire called the 
program "a classic example of the Pen- 
tagon's 'foot in the door' technique." 

"Small sums spent for research and 
development are escalated into billions for 



new weapons systems which have never 
received a detailed and critical review by 
Congress as a whole," he said. 

He said he had written Secretary of 
Defense Melvin R. Laird for details of the 
purpose and application of the system. 

It is known as the "electronic battle- 
field" or "automated battlefield" and is 
intended to provide complete surveillance 
of enemy movements through the use of 
sensor devices backed by computers, Mr. 
Proxmire said. 

"One of the biggest problems with the 
weapons system is that ttie sensors cannot 
discriminate between soldiers and women 
and children," he added. 

"Whole villages may be wiped out by 
seeding wide spread areas with air-drop- 
ped explosive devices designed to kill 
anyone who ventures near them," he said. 
' Once seeded, we could lose control over 
these devices andJhe;^_wouldj;efiresent_a_ 



permanent menace to the civilian populat- 
ion." 

He said: "A second major problem is 
the extreme vulnerability of much of the 
electronic equipment to malfunction due to 
rough treatment such as has already been 
experienced with an infrared night obser- 
vation device." 

Research costs started with $3.5- 
million in the fiscal year 1967 and jump- 
ed to $82.8- million the following year, 
Mr. Proxmire said, and procurement costs 
rose from $192.6 million in the fiscal 
year 1967 to $524- million the following 
year. 

"I am not automatically suggesting that 
the program is necessarily a bad invest- 
ment; 1 am saying that it needs to be very 
carefully studied before additional money 
is committed for its further development," 
Proxmire said.

UMass '68 - An Early Test For Bill Baird 



Bill Baird has been no stranger 
to the UMass campus during his 
crusade to have Massachusetts 
Birth Control laws updated. Just 
last month, Baird was on campus 
seeking support for his candidacy 
for U.S. Senate at the Democratic 
Convention. And, just two years 
ago, Baird made state- wide head- 
lines in Amherst. 

On April 9, 1968, Baird came 
to UMass to lecture at the Stu- 
dent Union Ballroom about his 
birth control conviction and ab- 
out his own personal career. Ba- 
ird in effect was violating the 
Massachusetts birth control laws 
by his mere lecturing about birth 



control. 

During the address, attended by 
an overflow ballroom crowd, Ba- 
ird distributed magazines that con- 
tained birth control advertising and 
are widely available on local new- 
stands, magazines like Time, Mc- 
Calls and Redbook. He stressed 
the obvious hypocrisy of the laws 
that convicted him of a felony 
for his actions at B.U. but failed 
to prosecute the magazines. 

At the meeting, students formed 
an organization that would support 
Baird and gain student signatures 
on petitions that would go to then 
Governor Volpe. 

The next day, with 12 students 



By ROBERT NORTHSHEILD 
Contributing Editor 



and a UMass professor, Baird 
went to Zayre*s Department Store 
in Hadley. A UMass junior coed 
purchased a birth control pro- 
duct illegally at Zayre's. Baird 
immediately called State Police to 
test enforcement of the statute, 
that Zayre's was obviously violat- 
ing. Another coed also bought a 
copy of McCall's that contained a 
birth control advertisement. 

When the police arrived, they 
refused to take action saying that 
they had not seen the law vio- 
lated themselves and referred him 
to the Northampton County Court 
to prosecute the store manager. 



Baird then had a coed buy an- 
other magazine but the police 
still did not act. 

The store manager then ordered 
Baird and his supporters out of the 
store saying they were trespass- 
ing, and subsequently, the birth 
control products were removed 
from the shelves of the store. 
The manager threatened to pro- 
secute an alleged 100 UMass stu- 
dent shoplifters if Baird did not 

IP3.VP 

The MASSACHUSETTS DAILY 
COLLEGIAN came out the next 
day with a special edition and 
along with the Student Senate spon- 
sored a rally in support of Baird 



in front of Zayre's. T^-'-ee hun- 
dred studfdits attendee? id a trip 
to Boston to confront the Gover- 
nor with the incident and present 
him with over 1000 student sig- 
natures on petitions in support 
of Baird was planned. Also Ba- 
ird planned legal action against 
Zayres to test the birth control 
law. 

A Boston demonstration with 75 
UMass students was held, but the 
incident died thereafter, with the 
coming of spring and final exams. 

For a week, though, Baird was 
the talk of the UMass campus, 
and the biggest name in the news. 



Text Of The Court's Birth Control Ruling 



(Editor's note - The fol- 
lowing are exerpts from the 
first U.S. District Court of 
Appeals on William Baird's 
challenge to the Massachu- 
setts State Birth Control 
Law.) 

Petitioner attacks and statute on 
a number of grounds. The first 
two need not detain us. His ex- 
tensive argument that the First 
Amendment entitled him to deliver 
a contraceptive article as "sym- 
bolic speech" is less persuasive 
than the defendant's claim in the 
United States v. O'Brien that he 
could emphasize an anti-war 
speech by burning his draft card. 
Even there the Supreme Court, 
as well as, in this respect, our- 
selves, was unimpressed by the 
argument that the right of free 
speech justifies the performance of 
an act which has been reasonably 
prohibited on independent substan- 
tive grounds. United States v. 
O'Brien, 1968, 391 U.S. 367. Equ- 
ally unsupportable is the contention 
that the elimination of a small 
part of the statute, the provision 
against exhibition, destroys the 
statute as a whole. This is not an 
instance of judicial excision mak- 
ing the remainder difficult to inter- 
pret. Nor i s this one of those 
'•rarest of cases" where the stat- 
ute has l)een so reduced in scope 
as to leave it pointless. See 
United States v. Raines, 1960, 362 
U.S. 17, 23. The excision argu- 
ment did not persuade the Massa- 
chusetts court, whose interpreta- 
tion of the statute controls; nor 
this it us. 

Petitioner's more substantive 
claims need considerable rephras- 
ing. The issue before us is whe- 
ther the statute 'T»ars a real and 
substantial relation to the puldic 
health, safety, morals, or some 
other phase of the general wel- 
fare." Sperry & Hutchinson Co. 
V. Director, 1940, 307 Mass. 408, 
418. Or, in the Commonwealth's 
words, it must be shown that the 
statute "does not bear a reason- 
able relationship to a proper leg- 
islative purpose, or . . . is . . . 
arbitrary and discriminatory." 
iNebbiu v. New York, 1934, 291 
U.S. 502, 537; Meyer v. Nebras- 
ka, 1923^ 262, U.S. 390, 399-400. 
The Commonwealth asserts two 
general purposes, health and mor- 
als. In resting its decision on the 
former the court said in Baird, 
"The Commonwealth has a leg- 
itimate interest in preventing the 
distribution of articles designed to 
prevent contraception which may 
have undesirable, if not danger- 



ous, physical consequences." 1969 
Mass. A.S. at 733. 

More recently the court had oc- 
casion to expand upon this state- 
ment. In Sturgis v. Attorney 
General, 1970 Mass. A.S. -, (6- 
29-70)j plaintiffs, two qualified 
physicians specializing in gyne- 
cology sought under Massachusetts 
practice a declaratory judgment 
that the statute is unconstitutional 
in that it prevents them from furn- 
ishing assistance to their unmar- 
ried patients. The court. Justices 
Cutter and Spiegel dissenting as to 
the outcome, stated, 

"The Legislature is free to con- 
clude that some harm may conceiv- 
ably attend the employment of con- 
traceptive devices . . . (Henc) 
the prohibition against their dis- 
tribution t)ears a real and sub- 
stantial relation to the legislative 
purpose." 

The court went on to say that 
Griswold v. Connecticut, 1965, 381 
U.S. 479, post, affirmed "beyond 
doubt" the right of the state "to 
enact statutes regulating the pri- 
vate sexual lives of single per- 
sons." The court, accordingly, 
upheld the statute in its ML 
scope, as "protecting the public 
health." 

While we agree with the gener- 
ality of these observations as sta- 
tements of principle, we are unable 
to find the statute to be an appli- 
cation thereof. Alternatively, if it 
could be though to be Intended for 
a proper purpose, we could not 
find. In the words of the Com- 
monwealth quoted earlier, that it 
bears "a reasonable relationship" 
thereto, but, rather, we would find 
It "arbitrary and discriminatory.'* 
We reach these conclusions both 
l)ecause o! the statute's total ex- 
clusion of the unmarried, and be- 
cause of its palpable overbreadth 
with respect to the married. 

So far as health is concerned, 
as Justices Whittemore and Cut- 
ter, dissenting in Baird, pointed 
out, "If there is need to have a 
physician prescribe (and a phar- 
macist dispense) contraceptives, 
that need is as great for un- 
iTiarried persons as for married 
persons," 1969 Mass. A.S. at 738. 
But not only are their needs the 
same, their physical characterist- 
ics, and their individual responses 
to contraceptives must be the 
same. The court's quoted state- 
ment in Sturgis that the "prohi- 
bition against . . . distribution 
bears a real and substantial re- 
lation to the legislative purpose" 
is, with due respect, beside the 
mark if the purpose is health. 
Tlie court neglects the fact that the 
legislature has recofmized that 



health does not require prohibit- 
ion; a physician may safely pre- 
scribe for married persons. If 
the prohibition which the court 
sui^rts is to be taken to mean 
that the same physician who can 
prescribe for married patients 
does not have sufficient skill to 
protect the health of patients who 
lack a marriage certificate, or who 
may be currently divorced, it is 
illogical to the point of irration- 
ality. For reasons we will come 
to, we do not believe that health 
is the legislative purpose, but if it 
is, the statute is arbitrary, and 
by the same token, grossly dis- 
criminatory. 

In addition, we must take no- 
tice that not all contraceptive 
devices risk "undesirable . . . 
(or) dangerous jAysical consequ- 
ences." It is 200 years since 
Casanova recorded the ubiquitous 
article which, perhaps because of 
the birthj^ace of its inventor, he 
termed a "redlngote anglais." The 
reputed nationality of the condom 
has now changed, but we have never 
heard criticism of it on the side 
of health. We cannot think that 
the legislature was unaware of it, 
or could have thought that it need- 
ed a medical prescription. We 
believe the same could be said of 
certain other products. Petitioner 
says this is true of vaginal foam. 
Since he failed to prove it, we 
cannot so find, but we may assume, 
broadly, that not all chemical com- 

?)unds are inherently dangerous, 
he legislature made no attempt to 
distinguish, in the statutory res- 
triction, between dangerous or 
possibly dangerous articles, and 
those which are medically harm- 
less. 

In this posture it is impossible 
to think of the statute as intended 
as a health measure for the un- 
married, and it is almost as dif- 
ficult to think of it as so intended 
even as to the married. If there 
could be any doubts, it is to be 
noted that health protection, even 
for the married, had no place 
prior to the 1966 amendment. The 
legislature intended just the op- 
posite. Consistent with the fact 
that the statute was contained in a 
chapter dealing with "Crimes Ag- 
ainst Chastity, Morality, Decency 
and Good Order," it was cast only 
in terms of morals. A physician 
was forbidden to prescribe contra- 
ceptives even when needed for the 
protection of health. Common- 
wealth v. Gardner, 1938, 300 Mass. 
372. The court in Baird gave the 
reason for this change. "The 
amendments made by St. 1966, c. 
265 (Section 21A. n. 1, ante) were 
brought about by the decision in 



Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. 
479, which held unconstitutional as 
applied to married persons a sta- 
tute prohibiting the use of contra- 
ceptives and the giving of advice 
on the subject," 1969 Mass. A.S. 
at 729. C^ this record we do not 
iKlieve that the legislature sudden- 
ly reversed its field and developed 
an interest in health. Rather, it 
merely made what it thought to be 
the precise accommodation neces- 
sary to escape ihe Griswold rul- 
ing. 

Turning to the second contention, 
that the statute has a legitimate 
purpose to protect morals, the 
Commonwealth argues that lack 
of access to contraceptive ma- 
terials will have a deterrent effect 
upon the commission of fornica- 
tion, viz., sexual Intercourse l)e- 
tween consenting, unmarried ad- 
ults. Fornication is a misde- 
meanor, entailing a thirty dollar 
fine, or three months in jail. 
Mass. G.L. c. 272 - 18. Vio- 
lation of the present statute is a 
felony, punishable by five years 
in prison. We find it hard to be- 
lieve that the legislature adopted 
a statute carrying a five-year 
penalty for its possible, obviously 
by no means fully effective, de- 
terrence of the commission of a 
linety-day misdemeanor. Here, 
igain, we look to history. If the 
prevention of fornication was the 
true statutory aim, there never was 
a reason to deny access to con- 
tracei^ve materials to married 
persons. Yet, as we have noted, 
until Griswold the married as well 
as the unmarried were equally 
proscribed. We are led inevit- 
ably to the conclusion that, so 
far as morals are concerned, it is 
contraceptives per se that are 
considered immoral - to the extent 
ttiat Griswold will permit such a 
declaration. 

To say that contraceptives are 
immoral as such', and are to Iw 
forbidden to unmarried persons 
who will nevertheless persist in 
having intercourse, means that 
such persons must risk for them- 
selves an unwanted pregnancy, for 
the child, illegitimacy, and for so- 
ciety, a pfjssible obligation of sup- 
port. Such a view of morality 
is not only the very mirror im- 
age of sensible legislation; we con- 
sider that it conflicts with funda- 
mental human rights. In the al>- 
sence of demonstrated harm, we 
hold it is beyond the comoetencv 
of the state. See the various op- 
inions in Griswold v. Connecticut, 
ante, particularly those of Mr. 
Justice Harlan and Mr. Justice 
White, concurring. See also Ri- 
chards V. Thurston. 1 Clr.. 4-28- 



70. 

Even then, there would be dif- 
ficulties. Deletion of unsupport- 
able overbreadth, encompassing 
articles not reasonably believed 
dangerous to health, would leave 
the statute with an element of 
vagueness, a l)urden we would be 
reluctant to impose upon the fun- 
damental rights at stake here. 
Aptheker v. Secretary of State, 
1964, 378 U.S. 500, 515-17; see 
Bouie v. City of Columbia, 1964, 
378 U.S. 347, 362. Where the 
statute, prior to its amendment, 
advanced no constitutionally per- 
missable objective, and the amend- 
ment revealed no purpose except 
to preserve as m.uch of the stat- 
ute as possible in the face of su- 
pervening judicial authority, we 
must conclude that any finding of 
proper purpose would be mere pre- 
tense. Cf. Ho Ah Kow V. Nunan. 
C.C.Cal., 1879, 5 Sawyer 552-12 
Fed. Cas. 252. We see no basis 
for a presumption in the statute's 
favor, see United States v. O* 
Brien, 1968, 391 U.S. 367, 383; Goe- 
saert v. Cleary, 1948, 335 U.S. 
464, or any reason why we should 
interpret it or attempt to. 

In so holding we in no way sug- 
gest that the legislature may not 
enact a statute appropriately di- 
rected toward the protection of 
health, to guard married and un- 
married persons alike. We ol)- 
serve further, that if the legis- 
lature is truly concerned with de- 
terring fornication it may in- 
crease the statutory penalty to 
mark the measure of its concern. 
It may not do so, however, Xjy 
making the penalty a personally, 
and socially, undesired pregnancy. 

Finally the Commonwealth says 
that petitioner has not shown that 
his own constitutional rights have 
l)een violated, and therefore that 
he has no standing to attack the 
statute. If only some application 
of the statute were constitutionally 
unwarranted, there might be merit 
in this position. We, however, 
have held the statute itself void. 
Petitioner is being jailed for a 
direct violation of that statute; he 
must have as much standing to 
protect as anyone else. In this 
connection we observe that by cri- 
ticizing so as to invite arrest, the 
Massachusetts court implicitly re- 
cognized petitioner's standing and 
interest. 1969 Mass. A.S. at 735. 
We will do no less. The order of 
the District Court is vacated, and 
the action remanded thereto with 
instructions to grant the writ dis 
charging the petitioner.

Students Protest Rent Hike 
At Off Campus Apartments 



Representatives of major student organizations will meet with 
Chancellor Oswald Tippo Thursday in an attempt to unravel problems 
with the student activities tax that could freeze funds for campus or- 
ganizations in the fall. 

The situation surfaced a week ago, when, at a preliminary meeting 
to approve the student activities tax, the Chancellor expressed concern 
for a seven dollar increase in the tax, noting that he had received a 
sizeable number of letters from students and parents protesting the 
increase. 

The main area of contention seems to l)e the area of newly funded 
community service organizations whose main focus is off- campus. 
The Chancellor ordered funds frozen pending further discussion, 
mentioning that he had now quarrels with existing organizations. 

The fund freeze means that no student organization can spend any 
of its 1970-71 appropriation pending the resolution of the dispute. 

Reportedly, the issue will I* brought before the University Board 
of Trustees at their August meeting, although to get the issue on the 
agenda for that meeting, the decision mus* l)e made soon. Ultimately, 
the issue could be placed on student referendum. 

The freeze brought quick reaction from two leaders of student groups. 
Student Senate President Glen Elters expressed fears that the freeze 
"is setting a dangerous precedent " while Peter Pascarelli, Editor-in- 
Chief of the MASSACHUSETTS DAILY COLLEGIAN, which has the second 
largest SATF appropriation, commented that a possible referendum 
coidd open "a pandora's Iwx of trouble for all student activities." 

The student tax request is for $556,228, an increase of almost $150, 
000. The student activities fee would rise therefore to approximately 
$40 per student.

A committee of graduate and 
married students opposed to a 
planned rent hike in the Univer- 
sity's two off campus apartment 
twildings will meet with Chan- 
cellor Oswald Tippo tomorrow to 
discuss the proposed increase. 

Residents of Lincoln Ave. A- 
partments and University Apart- 
ments were notified by mail last 
week that a 54% rent hike would 
l)e imposed for the coming aca- 
demic year. UMass owns both 
complexes, and used them to pro- 
vide married and graduate student 
housing. 

The rent increase was made 
necessary when the Board of Trus- 
tees voted last month to equalize 
rents for all University owned 
apartments, setting rents for all 
apartments at an average figure 
between the present rate for the 
two older apartment buildings and 
the yet to be opened complex of 
graduate housing now under con- 
struction between the school and 
the privately owned Pufton Village 
complex. 

At a meeting last Thursday 
between residents and administra- 
tors, the students were told that 
the University has been paying all 
operating costs for the apartment 



By MARK SILVERMv^N 
Managing Editor 

for the past several years. 

The administration added that, 
while the two apartment buildings 
were intended to t)e self- liquida- 
ting, no rent increases have t)een 
posted since either complex open- 
ed. And inflation, the adminis- 
trators explained, has caused o- 
perating costs to skyrocket over 
the past three years. 

An additional reason for the in- 
creases which University spokes- 
man explained at that meeting, 
included a plan to turn financial 
control of the buildings over to 
the residence hall trust fund, a 
move which will force each a- 
partment to become self-support- 
ing. 

But the students blamed the 
University's planning of the new 
North Village housing project as 
the reason for the increases. 
They stated that the costs of build- 
ing the new project were so high 
that the added rents in the older 
l)uildings were needed to finance 
the new buildings. 

Students had originally proposed 
a low-cost trailer park but Uni- 
versity officials a year ago said 
that the hiiilding authority could 
not obtain long-term financing for 



a trailer park. 

But students last week stressed 
that they still believed that con- 
struction of a trailer park would 
have been possible and that, if 
the University had used this me- 
thod of providing more housing 
space, the rent increase would at 
least be lower than 54%. 

Graduate School Dean Mortimer 
Appley proposed a possible so- 
lution to the argument, when he 
suggested that students now living 
in the older apartments could pay 
their present rent while all new 
residents would pay the increased 
rent. 

No action was taken on this 
proposal, however. 

Complicating the situation was 
the University's announcement that 
effective September 1971, no more 
than 5% of the University's owned 
apartments may house faculty and 
staff. 

But University officials will al- 
low faculty members now living 
in the two complexes to stay there 
for up to three years, or for as 
long as their leases run. Univer- 
sity spokesman said last week they 
expect no controversy over this 
decision.

Summer vacation ended six

2500 students yesterday, as they 
registered for the University's 
Summer Session at Boyden Gym- 
nasium. 

Running, until August 30, the 
Summer Session is handicapped 
this year by what administration

'ture's lack of support. A small 
budget last year forced the Sum - 
uier School to be reduced from 
12 to six weeks, and the numlwr 



of course offerings is consider- 
ably less than last year. For 
more on summer school problems 
across the nation, see story on

But, budgetary problems aside, 
school officials still call the ses-

Last summer more than 3000 persons cheered the venerable band for 
a performance on the maU at Southwest Residential CoUege. 

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band includes in its membership Bille 
and Dede Herce, piano and corneL respectively; WUlie J. Humphrey, 
clarinet: Jim Robinson, trombone; Cie Frazier, drums and Allan Jaffe, 
tuba The band is perhaps the last ensemble of its kind. Most of the 
members of the band are in their sixties and represent the finest of 
the old-time musicians playing tradiUonal New Orleans Jazz, not to 
be confused with the commercial Dixieland prevalent today. 

Preservation Hall was founded in 1961 to give audiences a chance to 
re-discover the vitality and charm of the original jazz form, played 
live by the dwindling ranks of the original musicians, all contempora- 
ries of Louis Armstrong, Bunk Johnson, King OUver and JeUy Roll 
Morton. 

This summer, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band will tour the United 
States, including performances in Philharmonic Hall, Lincoln Center, 
New York and the Saratoga Music Festival prior to a European and

Summer School Enrollment Leveling Off Everywhere 



For the first time since the 
Korean War, enrollment at college 
and university summer sessions a- 
round the courtry has apparently 
failed to grow this year. In some 
cases, it has dropped sharply. 
Final enrollment totals are not 
yet available, Iwt government and 
academic officials said in aderies 
of interviews that enough schools 
had reported declines, or at least 
static enrollment, to indicate that 
the final 1970 figure would prob- 
ably fall below last year's, which 
was about 1.8 milUon. The effect 
could be financially harmful to 
many of the institutions involved. 
New York City colleges seem 
to be an exception to the national 
trend. Columbia University, for 
example, reported summer eiiroH- 
ment the same as last year. In- 
complete figures for City Univer- 
sity units indicate some small 
increases - 414 at City College, 
176 students at Bronx Commun- 
ity College and 160 at New York 
City Community College. 
But upstate at Cornell Univer- 



sity summer attendance remained 
at the 1969 figure of 4,500. 

Some college officials laid the 
decline in summer enrollment to 
increased tuitions and a tight e- 
conomy that have forced many 
students to seek summer jobs and 
at least some income to help de- 
fray family expenses and meet 
regular tuition bills this fall. 

Others, 6uch as Prof. Clarence 
Schoenfeld, of the University of 
Wisconsin, an author and expert 
on summer school, speculated that 
many students were emotionally 
exhausted after a spring of camp- 
us protests and that many par- 
ents now feel a campus is just 
not the place for their child to 
l)e any more. 

"Thanks to all sorts of tens- 
ions in our country," the pro- 
fessor said, "this summer is 
simply not a time for quiet scho- 
larship." 

Summer enrollment declines run 
directly counter to the goals of 
most schools. They have en- 
couraged summer studies as a

means of spreading their in - 
structional and financial loads and 
income over a longer period and 
making maximum use of costly 
campus facilities. 

Such plans, officers of the fi- 
nancially pressed schools pointed 
out, have made necessary tuition 
increases more modest than would 
otherwise be possible. 

Among those schools hardest hit, 
Dr. Robert W. Richey said, was 
Northwestern University in Evan- 
ston. 111., where enrollment in the 
summer quarter this year dropped 
by about 20 per cent to 3,500. 
Dr. Richey is director of the 
Association of University Summer 
Sessions. 

"It's almost a disaster,*' said 
William C. Bradford, the school's 
dean of summer session. "We 
hope we'll break even but we're 
not evensure of that this summer." 

The drop there has prompted a 
study that may lead to major 
summer curriculum changes and 
revision of the tuition, which in- 
creased by $80 to $290 a course 
this summer. 

Another factor. Dean Bradford 
said, was that more summer pro- 
grams were l)eing offered by more 
schools, thereby increasing com - 
petiton. 

Other schools also reported en- 



rollment decreases. Indiana Uni- 
versity, where tuition was also 
increased, is down 8.7 per cent 
to 10,397. Harvard enrollment 
fell 15 per cent this summer to 
about 3,800. "The feeUng de- 
finitely is that this is a problem 
of inflation increasing college 
costs," said Thomas E. Crooks, 
summer session director. 

The University of Wisconsin at 
Madison, where non-resident stu- 
dent fees have jumped 700 per cent 
in 10 years, listed attendance down 
from 14,846 last summer to 13, 
149 now. Kent State University's 
enrollment fell 6.3 per cent to 
6,967. 

Decreases have also l)een re- 
ported at Duke University (10 per 
cent) and the University of Wyo- 
ming (3 per cent). 

Other schools, such as Stam- 
ford and Columbia, report the 
same enrollment as last year, 
which was 4.000 for both. In 
the city university system, some 
units experienced slight increases. 
City College, for instance, has 
6,654 students now, compared to 
6,240 last year. 

Hunter College enrollment grew 
by 725 this summer, but Queens 
College enrollment dropped 7,700, 
a result, in part, of a scheduling 
change. 




Variations in summer school 
enrolhnent historically have been 
closely connected to major social 
events. Sizable declines occurred 
during the Depression and at the 
start of the Korean War and World 
Warn. 

Many school officials said they 
were now pondering how serious 
a dip they were facing and what 
its duration might be. None would 
make any firm predictions. 

However, Dr. Richey said some 
partial solutions did exist. These 
include stronger counseling pro- 
grams urging summer enrollment 
and additional scholarship aid for 
summer students, traditionally a 
neglected area. 

hi Washington, however, Federal 
education officials said they antici- 
pated continued growth in student 
enrollment at elementary and sec- 
ondary summer schools. 

Incomplete figures for summer 
1967, the latest available, accord- 
ing to the Office of Education, 
showed that in the 36 states re- 
porting, 1.5 million pupils attend- 
ed elementary summer school 
while 1.6 million attended summer 
high school. 

The elementary student figure 
was more than double the 1965 
total and was attributed to com- 
pensatory educational provisions 
of the Elementary and Secondary 
Education Act, passed by Congress 
in 1965. 

The Board of Education here 
is spending $40-million this sum- 
mer, almost twice last year's fig- 
ure, for educational and recrea- 
tional programs expected to draw 
about 700,000 children, teen- 
agers and adults. 

Offerings range from remedial 
academic work to dramatics, ad- 
vanced mathematics, swimming, 
and counseling for pregnant teen- 
agers^ ^^

Saigon Peace March Disrupted by Police 



SAIGON, South Vietnam, - I\)licemen using tear gas broke up a March Saturday Ijy South Vietnamese 
students and a visiting American delegation here to assess the peace movement. 

Three American news correspondents and about 30 Vietnamese students were arrested. The ar- 
rested newsmen had reportedly accepted black armbands from the students, thus making themselves 
participants in the protest, according to the police. 



The newsmen - John Steinbeck, 
son of the late author and part-time 
correspondent for Columbia 
Broadcasting System and the Dis- 
patch News Agency; Thomas Fox 
of Dispatch, and Gerald A, files 
of Omega Films - were released 
quickly after their film was con- 
fiscated. A fourth correspondent, 
Carl Robinson of the Associated 
Press, was briefly detained. (Dave 
Miller, the C.B.S. bureau chiel 
in Saigon said the network had can- 
celed Mr. Steinbeck's accredation 
as a result of the incident. The 
Associated Press reported.) 

The students were reportedly 
released about 6 P.M. after the 
Americans in the peace group an- 
nounced they would postpone their 
scheduled departure until the stu 



dents were freed. 

ONE NEWSMAN SLIGHTLY HURT 

One news correspondent, George 
Watson of the American Broad- 
casting Company, was slightly in- 
jured when hit in the head by a 
tear-gas cannister fired by the 
police. There were no other in- 
juries reported in the wild scram- 
ble that followed the police inter- 
ception of the marchers near the 
United States Embassy in down- 
town Saigon. 

"It was one of the most brutal 
police actions Tve seen," said the 
Right Rev. Paul Moore Jr., Epis- 
copal Bishop of New York, chair- 
man of the visiting delegation. "I 
was horrified by their methods." 

The delegation, which included 
theHev. David Hunter, deputy gen- 



eral secretary of the Amferfcan 
Council of Churches; Rabbi Bal- 
four Brickner of the Union of A- 
merican Hebrew Congregations; 
Coarles Palmer, president of the 
iNational Student Association; Sam 
Brown, who was a leader in the 
Vietnam moratorium movement, 
and several other religious and 
civil rights leaders and students, 
arrived here last Sunday to study 
the Vietnamese peace movement. 

They met briefly with Samuel 
D. Berger, Deputy United States 
Ambassador, but said their re- 
quests to meet Premier TranThien 
Khiem or other South Vietnamese 
officials were rejected. 

COFFIN IS PRESENTED 

The group had joined several 
hundred striking Vietnamese stu- 



dents Saturday morning in an as- 
sembly at the Saigon University 
faculty of agriculture. The Viet- 
namese presented the Americans 
with a ttiree-foot coffin as a sym- 
l)ol of the war's devastation and 
the visitors gave their hosts about 
200 draft cards of Americans who 
have vowed not to serve in Viet- 
nam. 

Afterward, the Vietnamese be- 
gan marching to the national palace 
to deliver a peace statement and 
the Americans, en route to the Uni- 
ted States Embassy to deliver a 
similar statement, joined them for 
part of the way. It was near the 
embassy at noon that the South 
Vietnamese police blocked the 
front and rear of the several hun- 
dred marchers and fired tear gas 
into their midst. 

The American delegation, which 
had a decidedly antiwar viewpoint, 
condemned the police action at a 
news conference this afternoon as 



evidence of "continued repres- 
sion by the Vietnamese regime of 
those who wouU speak out for an 
act in behalf of peace." 
The group also termed the United 

States and allied intervention in 
Vietnam "obscene." 

The members said they would 
report on their return the stories 
they heard about the arrest and 
torture of students and other in- 
stances of repression. 

The other American members 
of the delegation were the Rev. 
Bernard La Fayette of the South- 
ern Christian Leadership Confer- 
ence; Timothy Butz, student at Kent 
State University in Ohio; Sister 
Mary Luke Tobin, superior of the 
Order of Loretto; Mrs. Dorothy 
Cotton, educational coordinator of 
the Southern Christian Leadership 
Conference. In addition the group 
included five Australians, three 
New Zealanders and a Dutchman.

^'DIXIE PARADISE is a sensual

The incredible artistry of this man, 
his incredible patience. (He worked 
on UNSERE AFRIKAREISE for five

Masque Enters Rehearsal 

By ALBERT BENSON 
Asst. Managing Editor 

"The Masque," a newly formed theater ensemble, is using inno- 
vative and creative approaches to drama in its rehearsals which 
are now being held in South College. 

"We are," according to Dan Murphy, one of the directors of the 
group "using these techniques to help evolve a vital kind of approach 
to the theater." "We hope to break down the barriers between the 
actors, directors, and audience and to make theatre a total experi- 
ence," he added. 

The basic innovative device used by the group is the ensemble 
format itself. It was hoped that by having the actors and directors 
work together on both the dramatic and technical aspects of the plays, 
a group spirit would evolve. This spirit of freedom within the group 
was to have to facilitated the actor's confrontation with the audience. 

The plays chosen for production this summer also were conducive 
to the development of a group spirit. Each play permited more con- 
frontation between the actors and the audience. Among those chosen 
Works " by Harold Pinter, "Man Doesn't live by Bread Alone," by 
Jorg 6iaz, "From 7:15 to 8:00 Entrance through the Hoop," by Ra- 
pheal Alvarado, "End Game," by Samual Beckett, and two original 
plays by Dan Murphy, "The Process of Elimination," "Ceremony," 
an adaption of "Everyman." 

The group is made up of six members, Glenna Fickard, Steve Dris- 
coll. Bill Over, Mike Prusko, Pedro Silva, and Dan Murphy. The 
group will be maintained at this number because, it was felt that 
anything larger would l)e unmanageable. 

The group is performing in the basement of South College. The 
first play "A Slight Ache" will open on July 17. Tickets can be ob- 
tained at the Fine Arts' Council Office at Herter Hall or by calling

Former Trustee Found Guilty 



poem, "A Throw of Dice." Music 



Film Is Praised 



Jean Luc Goddard's new film 
"Sympathy for the Devil" is more 
likely to start a religious revival, 
than to cause an outpouring of 
sympathy for the radical images 
that it presents. 

Composed of several "camped- 
up" vignettes on radical life wo- 
ven through scenes of the Rolling 
Stones rehearsing their song 
"Sympathy for the Devil", the film 
flounders in a series of preten- 
tious, cliche- ridden symtwls. 

In the first scene viewers are 
confronted with the image of black 
revolutionaries reciting passages 
from Eldridge Cleaver in an auto- 
mobile juiUcyard. Three white 
women are brought out and exe- 
cuted. Some rhetoric is recited and 
blood spurts from one of the cars. 
The image of "white she devils" 
being killed in the junkyard of 
Western Civilation is so trite that 
it amazes me that Goddard used 
it. The scene was not a total loss, 



however. The sound crew who re- 
corded the revolutionaries recit- 
ing their "revolutionary books" 
was moving too fctst to catch most 
of the rhetoric. 

The second scene provides us 
with a pretty girl named Demo- 
cracy from somewhere outside of 
Budapest giving an interview as 
she waltzes through the forest. 
During the interview she descri- 
l)es how she has been through 
analysis, drugs, the breaking down 
of her sexual inhibitions, and every 
other hang-up that modern man 
or woman has faced. At one point 
she states that the only true in- 
tellectual revolutionary is one who 
is no longer intellectual. By pro- 
ducing a film which is full of 
f£ishionable, new-left clichees, and 
by blatantly appealing to the youth 
market, Goddard is moving in this 
direction of a true intellectual re- 
volutionary.

Thaw the Freeze 



f^PTKuATftP BV

Buchwald 



The current crisis over the student activities tax should be resolved immediately, by 
the removal of the current freeze on student organization budgets. The crisis causes the 
threat of a serious schism between the administration and student organizations, a threat 
that luckily can be alleviated before the fall. 

There is validity in the Chancellor's assertion that students should not have to pay 
for what they don't use, but this argument can be easily extended to include any student 
fee from paying for athletic team to paying for dining commons breakfasts they don't eat. 

And the assertion that a referendum on the budget would clear up the problem opens an ^^^^^^^^^ 
ominous danger to all student activities. . -^ . .. . * a "^"^^"^"^^^ 

The fact remains that the student tax is administered by and paid for by students and r>t^*^^>^ T7i-iy-ii->firk'n 
it should be up to them to decide on. The protests the Chancellor has received should beJ^pjpQ S rUllCtiUll 
directed to the student organizations themselves to answer. r^ 

Unfortunately, as usually happens, invective immediately fills the air, placing the 
two parties farther apart than is necessary. The situation is far too serious to be taken 
advantage of by profiteers and cynics whose main goal is another administration-student 
confrontation to wallow in from the sidelines. 

We wholeheartedly oppose the budget freeze, and wholeheartedly endorse efforts made 
to support the creation of community services and the ideas of student running of their 

budget. ■ .u • ^ * * * 

But we will oppose also methods of coercion, scare tactics, now in their infant stages, 
that hope to back the Chancellor against the wall. For like it or not, he holds all the 

cards. 

Unfortunately, in this game, he is wrong. 



'Daddy, what does me Vice President of the United

Before Any More Of It Went Down" 




WASHINGTON - 
States do?" 

"What do you mean, what does he do?" 
"I mean what does he DO?" 

"Well, he...ah....uh...he raises money for his party." 
"How does he do that?" 

"Well, he goes to a large fund-raising dinner or a lunch, and he 
speaks to people in his own party who give $100 or $500 to hear him 
attack the other party." 

"But what does he DO as Vice President?" 

"I told you what he does. He also dissents with people who dissent." 

"I don't understand what dissent means." 

"Well, there are a lot of people in this country who don't agree with 
what President Nixon is doing, and they say so. Now Vice President 
Agnew doesn't agree with what they're saying. So the Vice President 
dissents with them and calls them names. Then they dissent and call 
him names. So he gets madder and calls them MORE names and so 
on AD INFINITUM." 

"Doesn't he do anything else besides dissent?" 

"There's so much dissent in the country that dissenting can be a 
full-time job." 

"Does he help President Nixon run the country?" 

"Of course not. How could he do that and stiU fly around raising 
money for the party? Oh, he sits in the Senate every once in a while 
just in case he has to break a tie vote, but governing the country isn't 
Mr. Agnew's bag. Besides, the Constitution is pretty loose about what 
a Vice President has to do. Some play golf, others play tennis, biit 
Agnew prefers to stay out on the road calling a spade a spade." 

"Doesn't the President get mad that the Vice President isn't around?" 

"The President's delighted. Most Presidents of the United States 
never knew what to do with their Vice Presidents. The fact that Mr. 
Agnew has found a way of keeping busy pleased President fJixon no end." 

"Does the Vice President get paid?" 

"Very weU." 

"You mean just for calling people names?" 

"He doesn't just call people names, dummy. You see, in this coun- 
try there are good apples and bad apples. The bad apples have to be 
separated from the good apples. No one knows who the bad apples are 
except the Vice President. His job is to go to Republican fund-raising 
dinners and say 'How about these apples...' " 

"What does that do?" 

"It gets him a standing ovation." 

"Who are the bad apples?" 

"Who aren't is a better question. Averell Harriman for one, Cyrus 
Vance for another. Sens. Fulbright, Church, Hatfield, McGovern; 
James Reston, Herb Block, Effete intellectuals, the eastern-estab- 
lishment press, network commentators and rotten kids and people on 
welfare and peaceniks. God knows how many bad apples are still in 
his barrel." 

"If all the Vice President does is separate the good apples from 
the bad apples, why doesn't the Republican Party pay him instead of 
the American government?" 

"Because if anything happens to the President, the Vice President 
takes over the country." 
"What would haH)en then?" 

"Dammit son, you ask too many questions."

TO THE EDITOR: 

Regarding your editorial of 
July 1, 1970 - BOARD BLUNDERS 
you criticized Chancellor Tippo for 
his "Blatant Insensitivity to stu- 
dent, faculty, and even administra- 
tive feelings toward what the status 
of ROTC should be here." 

Unfortunately, you failed to men- 
tion that the results of the April 
10-11 referendum showed that 4,427 
students, staff members and facul- 
ty members out of 6,788 who par- 
ticipated in the referendum sup- 
ported the ROTC program at the 



University of Massachusetts. 

I have nothing but admiration 
for Chancellor Tippo. Instead of 
buckling to minority demands and 
threats like many college adminis- 
trators have done in the past, Mr. 
Tippo voted for what he thought 
was in the best interests of the 
University. 

More appropriately and cer- 
tainly more factually, the sentence 
should have read, "blatant insen- 
sitivity to the feelings of the St- 
atesmen's editorial board."

Vacation Means Campaigning 



PRINCETON, N. J., July 11 
While many of their fellows are 
soaking up the summer sun, stu- 
dents at dozens of colleges across 
the country are already hard at 
work preparing for political cam- 
paigns next fall. 

They are determined not to let 
the wave of political interest, sti- 
mulated by Cambodia and Kent 
State, break and disappear. And 
they are determined not to leave 
the public arena to those who be- 
lieve that throwing rocks is a 
meaningful political act. 

The biggest single, summer ac- 
tivity is voter registration. Stu- 
dents in Santa Clara County in 
California, for instance, helped 
register 1,000 voters in the first 
week of a drive they hope will 
help unseat Gov. Ronald Reagan 
and Senator George Murphy. 

Elsewhere, students are doing 
research on the records of pro- 
spective candidates, examining 
voting patterns in key districts, 
and generally gathering "informa- 
tion that will provide the basis for 
a massive student effort to elect 
peace candidates. 

Although a few conservatives 
are believed to have some stu- 
dent support, almost aU the youth- 
ful energy is devoted to candidates 
who oppose the Indochina war and 
favor a reordering of national 
priorities. 

The nerve center for much of 
this activity is here at Princeton 
University, national headquarters 
for the Movement for a New Con- 
gress, a loose confederation of 
groups from 350 colleges. 
20 Activists 
About 20 full-time activists are 
working in the basement store- 
room of a physics building, now 



festooned with maps of Congres- sing did not produce enough Kad- 



sional districts and aclatter with 
the pulsebeat of every political 
campaign, the mimeograph ma- 
chine. 

Decisions about which candidate 
to help are being made at local 
and regional levels. The nation- 
al office is providing advice and 
information, and one of their cur- 
rent projects is preparation of a 
paperback book on campaign tech- 
niques to be published in the fall. 
The national organizers are also 
analyzing the results of the spring 
primaries. One of their conclu- 
sions is that student volunteers do 
not cause a "backlash" when they 
work for a candidate, and can 
improve his performance by from 
2 to 10 percentage points. 

These views are based on a 
survey conducted by the Opinion 
Research Corporation of Prince- 
ton, which examined the results 
in New Jersey's 15th Congres- 
sional District, where Represen- 
tative Edward Patten last month 
defeated his youthful challenger, 
Lewis Kaden. 

Of 2,834 voters surveyed, 71 
per cent thought student partici- 
pation in politics was a good idea. 
Thirteen per cent objected to the 
students, and 16 per cent had no 
opinion. 

Marginal Areas 
The survey also indicated that 
supporters of Mr. Kaden were 
most effective when they canvas- 
sed voters in marginal areas, 
where each candidate had substan- 
tian support. 

By canvassing in strong Kaden 
areas, the students stimulated 
some Patten supporters to go to 
the polls. In areas partial to Re- 
presentative Patten, canvas - 



en voters to justify the effort, the 
survey said. 

Prof. Henry Bienen, co-director 
of the movement here, also point- 
ed out that the students were learn- 
ing the value of careful planning. 
"Simply providing a large num- 
ber of volunteers is not enough," 
said Professor Bienen, whose field 
is African politics. "The stu- 
dents have to be exceedingly 
we 11 -organized and the local cam- 
paigns have to be organized to 
receive them. Everything has to 
be done in a systematic fashion; it 
can't be half-baked." 

Professor Bienen said the move- 
ment's effort will be concentrated 
in from 50 to 70 races, where 
peace candidates are given a good 
chance of winning. 

"It would be a sin to lose a 
marginal race because the kids are 
working for a lost cause some- 
where else," he said. 

2 Immediate Poblems 
The movement is facing two 
immediate problems. One is 
money, and the group is holding a 
cocktail party in New York next 
week to try to raise funds. Se- 
condly, some colleges have been 
frightened by recent articles say- 
ing that they could lose their tax- 
exempt status if they allowed po- 
litical groups to use their facili- 
ties. For example, Columbia has 
tossed the movement off campus, 
and the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology has made them pay 
rent. 

"Hopefully, this will not become 
a popular thing for universities to 
do," said Robert Durkee, the 
movement's spokesman.

Maybe We'd Be More Convincing If We 
Could Bust Out Of Here"

Universities Risk | 
Tax Free Status 

A decision by the Waltham assessors to tax Brandeis University 
unless the National Student Strike Center is removed from the 
campus is having ramifications in other communities where colleges 
are situated. 

The assessors ruled that Brandeis could not keep its Ux-exempt 
status on bulding space used by the non-partisan student group, 
even though the group's activities had no official connection with 
the university. The board based its decision on the grounds that 
the center's activities were political, not educational, in nature, 
and that the center was a "national political organization." 

It was estimated that Brandeis would be liable for about $92,500 
in taxes for one building and room in another being used by the 
strike center, which was set up by students as a clearing house 
for information on campus protests at universities throughout the 
nation. To avoid the tax, the group agreed to relocate its head- 
quarters off campus on Walnut street in Waltham. 

Boston's Commissioner of Assessing, Theodore V.Anzalone, was 
scheduled to meet yesterday with Mayor Kevin H. White to determme 
whether Boston should follow Walthem's lead. Anzalone said he 
also would request an opinion on the legaUty of such action from 

the city's corporation counsel. 

If it is determined that student activity is jeopardizing the tax- 
exempt status of places such as Boston University, Anzalone said 
he would ask the school to help relocate the students off campus be- 
fore levying any assessments. 

The possibility that the increased paperwork might cost the city 
more than what it would gain from the assessment must also be con- 
sidered, he said, because only that part of the campus being used 
for non-educational purposes would be subject to taxation. 

Meanwhile, a Brandeis spokesman said the university will issue 
guidelines within two weeks that will affect all future political 
activities on that campus. 

At Boston College and MIT, where similar student information 
centers are located, otficiais said there were no plans to ask the 
groups to leave the campus. 

A regional student information center in MIT's MacLauren 
Building "does not violate our guideUnes," said Francis E. WyUe, 
director of public relations. "It is merely a center for exchanging 
information about activities on other campuses. It is not poUtical." 

Under new MIT policy, organizations participating in activities 
extending beyond campus, such as those supporting political 
candidates, must pay tne university for the use of its facilities. 
This is in line with Internal Revenue Service guidelines for tax 
exempt institutions. 

Thomas H. O'Connor, faculty assistant to the president at Boston 
College said the action by the Waltham assessors had changed 
the issue from "the expression of political opinion on the part of 
the administration to the allowabiUty of political statements by 
members of the academic community." 

Glenn Matsura of the New England Law School Coalition, head- 
quartered at BC. predicted that similar groups will have a more 
difficult time establishing themselves on campuses in the future. 

In New York yesterday, the Student Movement for a New Congress 
was asked to move its regional headquarters from the Columbia 
University campus. A Columbia dean reportedly asked the orgam- 
zation to leave because the situation seemed likely to bring about 
some disagreement as to what constituted political acUvity at 

colleges 

Mrs. Isabel Mackey, chairman of the Newton assessors, said 
yesterday that "if the students' activities are not related to the 
college's corporate purpose, that college should not come under 

tax-exempt status." .. w, i. 

However, Anzalone, in Boston, said, "It would probably be 
explained that the students' activities are part of the educational 
process and therefore should not be taxed." 

A suit by a Framingham school teacher to lift the tax-exempt 
status of five Greater Boston colleges on me grounds that they 
violated their exemption by participating in partisan poUtics is 
pending in the Massachusetts Equity Court.

offered jointly by the University's 
department of hotel and restaurant 
administration aiid the department 
of nutrition and food, in coopera- 
tion with the U. S. Department 
of Agriculture and the state de- 
partments of education of the nor- 
theast. It is part of the Univer- 
sity's Continuing Education pro- 
gram. 

The instruction and other as- 
pects of the seminar will be di- 
rected toward increasing the ef- 
fectiveness of school food service, 
expanding the horizon and capa- 
bilities of the participants, and 
developing an understanding of the 
future potential of the school food 



service program. 

Special attention will be directed 
to the problems currently fcicedby 
school food service supervisors 
and directors in urban areas, 
where facilities are limited and 
rapid expansion in child feeding 
operations are difficult. It is in 
these areas, especially the cities, 
where greatest problems are be- 
ing faced in meeting the promise 
of President Nixon and the Sec- 
retary of Agriculture that all needy 
school children will have school 
lunches by Thanksgiving this year. 

The instructional features of the 
seminar will include an opening 
day on which the progress, the 
currect situation, and the future 
potential of the school food ser- 
vice program will be considered. 
The second day will be devoted 
to the school lunch system, and 
then will follow presentations on 



Greenbaum's Book 
Highlights Talleyrand 



Louis S. Greenbaum, professor 
of history at UMass. is the authoi 
of "Falleyrand: Statesman 
Priest," published by the Catho 
lie University of America Press. 

Talleyrand's ministry coincided 
with an era of national crisis in 
France, and heightened temporal 
involvement of the Church. In 
his book, Greenbaum surveys the 
tensions which faced the serious 
internal cleavages that undermined 
the strength and unity of the cler- 



gy, and then placed Talleyrand in 
the context of these issues. He 
revises the generally accepted cy- 
nical view of Talleyrand's min- 
istry in the direction of courage, 
sincerity and industry. 

Dr. Greenbaum's field is Church 
history. A graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin, he received 
from Harvard University. He 
has also studied at the Sorbonne 
in Paris and at the Free Univer- 
sity in Berlin. 



the demands being made and about 
to l)e made on that system, and the 
various types of approaches that 
may be tqken in meeting the needs. 
These range from the expansion 
of the traditional school lunch 
program to the utilization of out- 
side firms. 

There will be lecture present- 
ations in the mornings and the 
afternoons will be devoted to ses- 
sions of a discussion group nature, 
in which the lectures of the morn- 
ing instructors will be considered 
and related to the food service 
operations of those in the groups. 
Case studies will be used as a 
basis for discussion group activi- 
ties. 

Credit on the graduate, under- 
graduate and associate degree le- 
vels will be available for tttbse 
qualifying and completing the re- 
quirements of the seminar. 

Class sessions will be in Skinner 
Hall, the home economics building, 
where a northeast school food 
service seminar office has been 
set up. 

Coordinator of the seminar is 
Charles E. Eshbach, associate 
professor in the College of Agri- 
culture's department of hotel and 
restaurant administration. As- 
sistant Coordinators are Mrs. Jane 
F. McCuUough in the School of 
Home Economics department of 
nutrition and food, and Albert L. 
Wrisley, of the department of hotel 
and restaurant administration.

The UMass General Information Bulletin speaks of a "rich tradition 
of educational and cultural activity" in the Pioneer VaUey of Am- 
herst and Northampton. Yet, until last week, erudite book browsers 
had to content themselves with shops specializing in textbooks and 
bestsellers; the nearest used bookstore, with the exception of an oc- 
casional flea market or tag sale, was in Springfield, Boston, or 
New York. 

On the 4th of July, the Hadley Bookshop first opened its doors on 
Route 9, Hadley, just east of the Farm Museum (204 Russell Street). 
Mr. Haskell Gruberger, late of New York City, is the owner of what is 
the only antiquarian bookshop in the area. In the book business over 
forty years, Mr. Gruberger had come to Hadley to spend his "de- 
clining years in bucholic surroundings." 

The Hadley Bookshop has few textbooks, concentrating on books in 
the humanities and the arts - "scholarly level, long-haired jazz" ac- 
cording to Gruberger. This does not mean that a student can not 
buy a course book in the store; there is much literature, social 
science, and paperbacks. But Gruberger caters to the browser, to 
the penniless scholar (there are books as cheap as a quarter), to the 
academician, and retains close contact with publishing houses in 
New York. 

One of the more pleasant aspects of browsing in the Hadley Bookshop 
is talking to Gruberger himself. A dropout from the City College in 
New York (he didn't quite make his French oral comprehensive), Gru- 
berger has come to the 5-College area with his wife and his dog. 
Erik, the dog, can often be seen chasing a tennis ball through the shop 
and being the door greeter to customers. 

During the summer, the Hadley Bookshop will be open seven days 
a week from 10 A.M. until 7 P.M., in an effort "to bring a little culture 
and imagination" to the area. 

Duo Head West For Summer 



Two from the UMass food sci- 
ence and technology faculty are 
giving courses on food processing 
in the West Indies this summer. 

Dr. William B. Esselen, de- 
partment head, has just completed 
a two -week short course on food 
quality control at the University 
of the West Indies in Trinidad. 



Prof. Kirby M. Hayes will assist 
in teaching a companion short 
course in handling, storage, pack- 
aging and marketing of fresh fruits 
and vegetables from July 20 to 31. 
The courses are for all terri- 
tories of the English-speaking 
Caril)bean and are co-sponsored 
by Canada Plus One.

WFCR H as SomethingFor Every one 



Don't yawn when you thinlc of public radio. Not any more. Although 
people have always associated public radio with dry, esoteric pro- 
gramming, WFCR has a schedule designed to change that opinion. 

"Public radio has none of the pressures of private radio/' says 
station manager Charles Keenan, a twenty-year veteran of radio, 
television, stage and motion picture production. "We can devote all 
our time to serving our audience, trying to give them stimulating and 
exceptional programming," he added.

As a public radio station, WFCR 
has the time to provide live cover- 
age of world events. The British

New Haven Black Panther rally 
were among the stories presented 
live and in their entirety to listen- 
ers. Preferring to let its audience

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



TUESDAY, JULY 14, 1970 



UM Hoop Star Erving 
Trys Out For Olympics 



Julius Erving, New England's 
outstanding college basketliall 
player during the 1969-70 season 
and co-captain of next year's Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts varsity 
basketl)all team, has l)een invited 
tjy the United States Olympic Com- 
mittee to participate in a three- 
week intensive training program at 
the Air Force Academy. 

Forty- four players have been 
elected for the tryouts and, foll- 
owing the completion of the train- 
ing period, 12 players will be 
chosen for an exhibition tour to 
meet the leading teams in Eastern 
Europe and the Soviet Union 



Jack Leaman, UMass head bas- 
ketball coach, was elated over the 
tryout invitation extended Erving, 
a 6-7 junior. "To think that Jul- 
ius has been chosen for such a sel- 
ect group has to be one of the 
finest honors that will ever come 
his way. I know he'll give an ex- 
cellent account of himself and his 
abilities as a representative of 
Eastern and Yankee Conference 
basketball." 

The players were selected from 
colleges, junior colleges, high 
schools and the Armed For- 
ces. With an eye on preparations 
for the Pan American games next 



year and the 1972 Olympic Games, 
the USOC selection committee 
headed by the Olympic team bas- 
ketball Coach Henry Iba considered 
college players who were primar- 
ily freshmen and sophomores. 

This is the first time that the 
United States Olympic Committee 
has ever undertaken a separate 
training camp to evaluate players 
two years before the Olympics and 
it will provide the American team 
with the opportunity to adjust to 
the "international style" of bas- 
ketball. 



Judge Defends Independent Press 



NEW HAVEN AP-The United 
States District Court in Connecti- 
cut has ruled that students of 
Rippowam High School in Stamford 
may publish independent news- 
papers without having the contents 
screened by school officials in ad- 
vance. 

The decision by Judge RolKrt 
C. Zampano, which was made 
public last week, nullified a re- 
gulation formulated by the Board 
of Education of Stamford. The rul- 
ing was expected to have far- 
reacliing effects in Connecticut 
and elsewhere in the United States. 

Monroe Silverman, an attorney 
for the Connecticut Civil Liber- 
ties Union, defended a group of 
Stamford students in a class-act- 
ion suit against th? board. He said 
the decision was the first of its 
kind. 

Mr. Silverman had argued that 
the school board's regulation con- 
travened the students' rights to 
freedom of speech and press 
under the First Amendment of the 
Constitution. 

SIMILAR ISSUES 

"Such rights of free expression 
have previously been established 
by our courts on the university 



level," he said, "but this decis- 
ion in favor of the Rippowam High 
School students is a precedent th- 
roughout the country in secondary 
education. 

In the first issue of their mim- 
eographed newspaper the student 
editors in Stamford wrote: "We 
wish to provide a forum for stu- 
dent ideas. In doing so we expect 
and hope for a large amount of 
controversy." 

In other issues, the students de- 
clared that free speech at Rippo- 
wam High School was dead and 
called the Student Council a tool of 
the administration of the school. 

At first the newspaper was dis- 
tributed off the school grounds. 
When the students attempted to 
circulate it on campus they were 
warned that they would be sus- 
pended. After what they consider 
to be unsuccessful negotiations, 
the students in June of 1969 filed 
suit. 

Until the controversy developed, 
the school board had not had any 
specific regulations concerning 
independent student newspapers. In 
the fall of 1969 the board passed 
a regulation that said in part: 
"No person shall distribute any 



printed or written matter on the 
grounds of any school or in any 
school building unless the distri- 
bution of such material shall have 
prior approval by the school ad- 
ministration." 

It was the regulation that Judge 
Zampano found to be "a classic 
example of prior restraint of 
speech and press" and violation 
of the First Amendment. 

Dr. Bernard Nemoitin, president 
of the school -board, said that 
while no formal decision had been 
made by the board, he hoped that 
Judge Zampano's ruling would be 
appealed. 

In his decision Judge Zampano 
wrote: 

"The remedy for today's aliena- 
tion and disorder among the youth 
is not less but more freedom of 
expression of ideas. 

"Student newspapers are val- 
uable educational tools, and also 
serve to aid school administrators 
by providing them with an insight 
into student thinking and student 
problems. They are valuable, 
peaceful channels of student pro - 
test which should be encouraged, 
not suppressed." 




JULIUS ERVING (32) here battles two Marquette play- 
ers for a rebound in National Invitation action in Madi- 
son Square Garden in New York. Erving was an All-New 
England performer and chosen as the outstanding soph- 
omore in the area last year. Erving shattered many 
school records during his banner season that led UMass 
to its finest season.

Newton May SurprisePanthersAfter Release 



SAN FRANCISCO, July 7 - On 
the empty storefronts around the 
Black Panther headquarters here 
the posters of Huey P. Newton 
are worn and tattered now. 

They have been on these old 
buildings since his imprisonment 
began more than two years ago 
and now they l)ear the scars in- 
flicted by time and the weather. 
The ruined posters do not mean 
that Newton is forgotten, though, 
because in this section of Fillmore 
Street, where Panther influence is 
high, the talk has turned from 
"Free Huey" to "when Huey gets 
out." 

Miles away at the California 
Men's Colony, isolated in the 
mountains near San Luis Obisp 
it is no different. Newton, too has 
begun to talk of "When Vm out." 
Newton , a founder and minister 
of defense of the Black Panther 
party, says he has no thoughts 
of slipping into exile once free. 
Rather, he talks of organizing 
blacks in the streets, of broad- 
ening the base of the Panthers 
and of building new party pro- 
grams. 

A VICTORY IN COURT 
Freedom for Newton, who has 
been serving a two- to- 15 -year 
prison sentence, became likely late 
in May when his conviction was 
overturned by the California Court 
of Appeal, The court cited ' 'omitted 
instructions" to the jury and other 
prejudicial errors for its decision. 
Newton has been in custody since 
Oct. 28, 1967, when he was char- 
ged with the murder of an Oak- 
land policeman. He was convicted 
of voluntary manslaughter in Sept- 
ember of 1968 and began serving 
his sentence at the men's colony 
a few flays later. 

The decision by the appeals 
court becomes final next month. 
Newton will then be returned to 
the Al.irn* la Coutitv Jail in Oak- 
land am] Aitidutoniatically Iwcome 
t'ligil/h' fiti bail even ttmuf'h a re- 
trial ap|w-ars crrt.iiri 



movement. Nor do his words match 
the rhetoric of many of his ad- 
vocates in the streets as they await 
his return. 

When "he talks of organizing, 
he talks as though he is not the 
most famous of the Panthers l)ut 
rather more like a memt)er of the 
lowest ranking cadre. 

"You know." he says, "I'll be 
out there in the streets, out there 
in the community, talking with the 
brothers and sisters." 

He sees as his challenge the 
bringing of people together to br- 
oaden the Panther base. He says 
ti.at it is necessary for the party 
to embrace the broad spectrum of 
black people rather than limit it 
simply to blacks off the street. 
While he did not discuss in a 
recent interview just what groups 
he would attempt to attract, he 
hinted that he was interested in 
both black students and the black 
professions. 

CLOSER LINK TO PRISONS 

In his discussion of new pro- 
grams he specifically mentioned 
organizing blacks who had rela- 
tives in prisons. He said that he 
would like to institute organized 
bus trips to prison so that blacks 
could more M\ realize that many 
of the inmates Wi.re being held as 
political prisoners. 

Newton also said that he would 
also attempt to make it possible 
for Eldridge Cleaver to return to 
the United States Cleaver, the Pan- 
ther's minister of information, 
chose to live in exile in Algeria 
ra.iier than be returned to prison 
in California as a parole violator. 

Newton is making his plan out, 
others have other ideas for him 
once he is freed. 

"When the minister of defense 
is out," one youthful party mem- 
ber on Fillmore Street said, 
"you're gonna see us move. Huey 
is the baddest. He'll be in the 
streets. You haven't heard it yet." 

Such people see Newton as the 
(lashing revolutionary figure. Some 

■ ■ • ■ ■ '■ his leading a 
t from the black 



dedicated revolutionary^ he also 
says he is practical and is opposed 
to instituting violence. But there 
are reasons why many people have 
such expertations of Newton. 

He was imprisoned just five 
months after the Black Panther 
party first attracted national atten- 
tion by bursting into a session of 
the California State Legislature 
carrying pistols, rifles and shot- 
guns. The Panthers' demonstration 
was to call attention to proposed 
legislation that would have curl)ed 
the right of private citizens to 
bear arms. 

Others, though, remember him 
from the streets. They remember 
his riding patrol on the police 
through Oakland's black com- 
munity along with Bobby G. Seale, 
the party's chairman, with an M-1 
rifle sitting boldly at his side. 

They remember him being 
stopped by the police and how he 
would shout that he had a right, 
to bear arms and that if they 
wanted his rifle they would have 
to take it. They remember, too, 
that he warned the police that 
if they went for their guns he would 
shoot them. 

Some people only know Newton 
from the widely circulated poster 
that l)ears his picture with the 
beret, the black leather jacket, 
shotgun and spear. 

With this image in mind, they 
expect him to reassume this role 
in the streets. But he says he is 
not the Huey P. Newton in the 
poster, and from this tiny, quiet 
prison here in the mountains, New- 
ton somehow does not fit that 
image. 

He is 28 years old and slim 
and even in the heavy blue pri- 
son jacket that he wears as he 
sits in a small visitor's room, he 
is handsome. 

PROBLEMS WITH SOCIALISM 

He talks lor an hour and his 
words come fast and enthusias- 
tically. But he never lapses into 
the four-letter wrr-v ♦'r.it often 
punctuate the Ian f other 

Panther leader 
v-.u*,,r, ti ii , ,..,uy but there 

txiut tiim. 



He describes the Panther goal 
as creating what he calls "a Demo- 
cratic Socialistic society free of 
racism." He describes this as a 
society where the people control 
the institutions and says that it does 
not represent any departure from 
original Panther philosophy. 

He speaks of government as a 
cooperative and one that responds 
to collectivism. But he concedes 
that the word Socialism presents 
a problem. 

"People can identify as long as 
we talk about reform," he expl- 
ains, "but when we talk of So- 
cialism, we lose some of them. 

"They tell a slave that Social- 
ism is bad. They say that if you 
own part of the system, it will 
be bad for you." He shakes his 
head. 

Basically, the Socialism des- 
cribed by Newton would enlarge 
public control of government and 
ownership of related institutions 
and would limit, or virtually elim- 
inate, private ownership. 

He says he does not believe 
that the Panther role in bringing 
this "basic, fundamental change" 
is to go into the street and shout 
revolution. 

EDUCATION AS A MEANS 

"We must educate the people," 
he explains. "If we can "ducate 
them and politicize them as to 
what is going on, make them see 
what is happening to them and 
why, then they will act. They will 
bring the revolution." 

Does he advocate violence? 

"We've never advocated vio- 
lence," he says. "Violence is in- 
flicted upon us. But we do believe 
in self-defense for ourselves and 
for black people." 

He characterizes the Panthers 
as "practical revolutionaries" and 
explained that as such, they would 
continue to use community issues 
as their base for mobiliz*..g peo- 
ple. 

Newton has strong ideas about 
himself and a definite set of basic 
principles. He does not believe that 
those prnciples can t)e compro- 

ve up my life tliaii 



my principles," Mfe says. 

It is on principle that he says 
that he could not flee into exile 
rather than face imprisonment if 
convicted again on retrial. 

It is on principle that he says 
that he could not have a family 
or even a marriage. He does not 
believe that it would be right for 
him to bring children into what he 
considers to be a racist, oppress- 
ive society. He does not l)elieve 
that it would be right for him to 
pay $50,000 for a home whose 
realistic price of $15,000 has, he 
says, been inflated by racism and 
capitalism. 

And he says that it is his prin- 
ciples that force him to say that 
"if I had a written guarantee 
that we were going to lose (the 
revolution), I would not act any 
differently." 

COMPROMISERS AS VICTIMS 

He calls this the position of 
revolutionary suicide. He says this 
of the obligation of that position: 

"If you're in a situation where 
you are confronted with tanks and 
you have nothing to fight with, you 
must still do something. If nothing 
else, you can at least spit on them." 

Those who have compromised 
are invoiced in what Newton calls 
reactionary suicide. "They die 
too," he says. "They have sub- 
mitted to the system and accept 
the gradual death." 

Newton a minister's son, at- 
tended Merritt College, a two- 
year institution in Oakland, and 
went to law school for a year. 
He had an early interest in psy- 
chology, sociology and history. He 
also spent long hours on the block 
as a boy growing up in Oakland's 
black community. Summing him- 
self up he says: "I was lucky. 
I knew the block and I knew the

Dorm Construction Lags 




Housing Squeeze 
Seen Tightening 

By MARK SILVERMAN 
Managing Editor 

The University's already gloomy housing situation grew even darker 
this week as the UMass Planning Office announced that only one of the 
"1970" dorms will be ready to open by second semester. 

And this fact, according to administration sources, will prevent 
several hundred students from "detripling" next year. 



StMdtflits lived in the Southwest Complex while construction off additional S.W 
dorms continued. The same life style, living with pneumatic jack hammers, will be H 
part of campus life in the "1970" dorms for several months. 

Students, Tippo To Meet 
Over SATF Hike Hassle 



student Senate President Glenn 
Elters and representatives from 
several R.S.O. groups will meet 
with Chancellor Tippo today to 
discuss the Chancellor's oppo- 
sition to the Student Senate's stu- 
dent activities budget for the com- 
ing year. 

The Student Activities Tax 
(SATF), the money paid by stu- 
dents to finance all R.S.O. groups, 
would rise seven dollars over last 
year's rate If the Senate's budget 
is ai^roved. 

Tippo said last week that he 
has been receiving a large num- 
ber of letters from parents pro- 
testing the use of student tax money 
for essentially off-campus activi- 
ties, such as the University MOBE 
and the Community Action Founda- 



tion. 

But students argue that, in the 
first place, the SATF is a stu- 
dent Tax, leveled by student re- 
presentatives for student activi- 
ties. They maintain that no admin- 
istrators should tamper with tills 
essentially student budget. 

Their second arguement is that 
students have always been required 



to pay many fees, such as the 
athletic fee, which they would not 
necessarily take advantage of. 

They add that it has been an 
accepted practice in the past to 
fund off-campus service organiza- 
tions from the SATF, and they cite 
the Belchertown Volunteers as an 
example. 



The school had planned to open 
at least twoof the dorms next year, 
and informed students last semes- 
ter that they Could volunteer for 
triples first semester, receive 
a 33% rent reduction, and then 
move into the newly completed 
dorms after Intersession. 

But a three week construction 
workers' strike last Spring has 
changed all of these plans. D. 
O'Connell and Sons, the prime 
contractor for the dorms, inform- 
ed the UMass Planning Office late 
last month that they could guaran- 
tee that only one of the dorms would 
be completed by the end of first 
semester. 

Planning Director H. Jack 
Littlefield explained, "We could 
have gambled and tried to have two 
dorms finished by January, but by 
so doing we would be risking the 
first dorm. We feel that, right 
now, it's better to just have the 
contractors concentrate on get- 
ting the first dorm ready on time." 

In response to the delays, Uni- 
versity spokesman indicated yes- 
terday that the school will extend 
its suspension of housing regula- 
tions and allow Juniors to move 
off campus indeflnately. 

The administration has also ur- 

S»d all Fraternity and Sorority 
ouses with extra living space to 
rent rooms to students looking Ibr 
housing, however, response from 
the Greek communitv has been 
received as yet. 



The new dorm complex, under 
construction on Eastman Lane ad- 
jacent to the Northern edge of the 
Quad and the Woman's Physical 
Education Building, will be or- 
ganized in a series of three room 
suites, instead of the traditional 
dorm floor olan. 

When the" building plans were 
announced over a year ago, the 
administration argued that the 
suite- style would be more com- 
fortable than the single -room con- 
cept of student housing. And sev- 
eral administrators predict that 
Ul future student housing at the 
University will be modeled after 
the Northeast dorms. 

But while the new dorms may 
eventually be more comfortable 
than other living areas on cam- 
pus, the complex's first resi- 
dents will have to live through 
the noise and dirt of construc- 
tion. 

"We realize that living in a 
dorm complex which is still un- 
der construction is rather uncom- 
fortable," UtUefield said, "But 
students lived in Southwest for 
three years while that construc- 
tion was being completed, and 
they survived. Those students 
who move into the "1970" dorms 
will just have to tolerate a little 
noise and confusion for a few 
months." 



"If I can't 
die in the 




Chancellor Tippo has 
impoeed a freeze on all 
budgets for the present.

The Massachusetts Summer Statesman 

The Political Vacation 



Though passed by the Faculty Senate late in the Spring, a plan for a two week recess 
in late October.for the campaigning for political candidates must still be finalized by the 
Board of Trustees to become officially incorporated into the academic calendar. And. it 
could be a difficult decision to make. 

The plan, has become known as the "Princeton Plan", since it was Princeton Univer- 
sity which originated the idea of rearranging the academic year so students could have 
two weeks before the general election to work for candidates of their choice. 

The UMass decision on the calendar change was first in the Trustee Committee of Fac- 
ulty and Education Policy. That Committee made no recommendation on the plan and sent 

it to the full Board. , ^ . , j .u 

Basically it is an excellent idea. Arguments are many in favor of the plan, and they 
all make sense. Unfortunately, there are serious doubts also working against the plan. 

Perhaps a summary of each side is in order. The idea of a vacation, (for campaigning 
notwithstanding) in the middle of fall semester used to be traditionally part of the aca- 
demic calendar. There is almost three solid months of classes between the start of school 
and the Thanksgiving vacation. Thus vacation at this time was being seriously thought of 
being revived, even before the Princeton Plan was made. 

There are further favorable advantages. The plan would encourage students to engage 
in legitimate political activity through established channels, rather than by unconveri- 
tional or illegal means. The plan can be interpreted as an act of good faith by the adult 
society toward the student generation. The campus would be preserving itself as a place 
for academic activities rather than political action, depolticizing the campus, leaving it 

free of political stance. , j *i_ n u- 

Also, by stating the recess and incorporating it now into the calendar, there will De 

saved the uncertainty and confusion that would arise from students participating in the 

activity no matter whether it is in the calendar or not. 

And, the direct participation in political process can be a valuable educational ex- 

'^'^Rankiy. these arguments are untenable and completely valid, taken on face value. The 
trouble is that there are pretty strong arguments against the plan, as it now is formed. 

The first is financial. The University will put its tax exempt status in jeopardy by 
adopting the plan. Guidelines have been set up by the American Council of Education 
which have been accepted l)y the Internal Revenue Service. They in effect state that tax 
exemptions would not be threatened by campaign recesses so long as the time is made up 
and the academic year is not shortened. In other words, the time must be made up in time 
that was already scheduled as recess or vacation time. Thus for example. Princeton is 
making up its time by starting the academic year a week early in September and shorten- 
ing somewhat the Christmas and Thanksgiving breaks. 

It is here that the UMass Plan runs into a snag. The time lost during recess, would be 
made up eliminating four reading days, shortening intersession by one day. reducing each 
examination period by one day, converting one Monday and one Thursday, two different 
Saturdays, since Saturdays are half-days, and dropping one extra Saturday from the Spring 

term. j ■ *• o • 

UMass is not meeting the guidelines. Time is being made up in academic time, brant- 
ed it is a state institution. But it could jeopardize Federal funds very easily by its calen- 

Other arguments are less in severity but still valid. No one knows how many students 
will use the time for political activities and how many will just take a vacation. There- 
fore is the University changing its schedule for 20.000 people when only a fraction of 
that many desire the political activity. (A precedent is the April 10-11 program, which 
though noble and valid in design had the participation of a few.) 

Students will be paying for two weeks of room and board that they will not use and 
will not be able to gain rebates for. The University must have all university buildings 
closed to insure that University grounds not be used for political activity. 

Non-professional employees may demand time off also to participate in the campaign. 
The legislature and parents will probably react unfavorably. (The House of Representatives 
has already killed one bill that would have allowed the state colleges and universities to 
close.) And it is Homecoming weekend, on the first weekend of the recess, with over 
$40 000 of student money tied up and entertainment contracts pending. 

The Princeton Plan is too valuable to discard completely. But the plan holds too many 

questions to be adopted as is, blindly. _. . u ^ t. 

Perhaps the following could be done. The time will be set aside for those students who 
want it for political activity. However, the first week of the semester, professors should 
state what their intention as to what they intend to do in class or otherwise concerning 
the campaign time. Thus students would be able to make the decision as to what they 
would do. No student would be penalized for taking the time o«, and all would be allowed 
make up exam, etc., for work missed. A Student-Faculty Grievance Committee coukl be 
set up to decide on any disputes. ... 

And perhaps, some courses indeed could incorporate a two-week experience in parti- 
cipatory politics. Government. Sociology, History courses are obvious. Mass Communica- 
rion courses could look at the media during their two week campaigning, journalism cour- 
ses the same, etc. , ., ,j o . I. 

The Princeton Plan, founded in the wake of the student strike, could eWect changes in 
the American electoral process that would be felt forever. The plan could bring universi 
ties to the foreground in leadership in communities that are becoming increasingly hos- 
tile to the academic community. And it could offer a place to function and influence a 
system that seemingly is an increasingly deaf and blind system to its youth. 

If the plan can be formed in such a way as not to jeopardize the university, financially 
or otherwise, and insures a choice for all, it must be adopted. The above suggestion may 

be the idea. 

The system may not have too many more chances to respond.

Viewpoint 

Tippo Wrong on Budget 



By DAN TRAGASER 
News Editor 



Chancellor Tippo's decision to 
take the Student Senate approved 
Activities Budget Act l)e£ore the 
Board of Trustees will probably 
create more problems than it will 
solve. Reportedly, Dr. Tippo re- 
ceived a barrage of complaints 
concerning the seven dollar 
increase in the Student Activities 
Tax from both students and par- 
ents. The complaints centered 
around substantial appropriations 
to newly formed groups which are 
generally oriented towards social 
action and off -campus under- 
takings. 

GrouDS which seem to be oar- 
ticularly vulnerable to Trustee 
scrutiny are the Coalition for En- 
vironmental Quality ($9,950), 
Community Action Foundation 
($28,656), Draft Counseling Ser- 
vice ($3,420), Learning Resources 
($1,450) and University MobiUza- 
tion ($5,340). The funding of these 
organizations accounts for about 
$5.05 per student of the projected 
$36.50 Student Activities Tax. 
One reason for the precarious 
funding situation which these 
groups find themselves in is that 
the Senate as a whole has never 
approved constitutions for them. 
Although it has approved their 
funding only the Executive com- 
mittee h.is approved their RSO 
legitimacy. In practice however, 
this probably would not affect the 
intornal affairs of the organiza- 
tions since most RSO groups tend 
to ignore their antiquated con- 
stitutions. Unfortunately, it does 
tend to cast a shadow upon, their 
legitimacy in the eyes of some 
administrators. 

The main bone of contention how- 
ever is the issue of having stu- 
dents pay for organizations which 
are primarily involved with off- 
campus problems and activities. 
The Chancellor seems more than 
a little reticent to see students 
being forced to pay a tax which 
will financially support particular 
positions on highly controversial 
political and social issues. Some 
of these organizations might par- 
ticipate in, and/or fund action 
which in the eyes of some might 
embarass the University. The par- 
ticipants in these endeavors are 
generally Radical activists and 
quite possibly the Chancellor and 
Trustees are reluctant to permit 



them to have substantial, secure 
student funding because of possi- 
ble political repercussions. 

The nature of these new organi- 
zations together with a l)elief that 
the Student Senate in recent years 
by continually raising the SATF 
has been growing increasingly in- 
sensitive toward the undergrad- 
uate financial burden seem to have 
caused the Chancellor to take the 
matter to the Board of Trustees 
in August. 

Tippo's decision seems to l)e 
based on a view that in this 
particular action the Student Sen- 
ate was not reflecting undergrad- 
uate needs and opinion. He is 
probably wrong. 

Two budget issues came up on 
referenda this year, a bill to help 
pay for buses to participate in the 
November 15 Moratorium in Wash- 
ington D.C. and the budget of the 
yearbook, INDEX. The first bud- 
get appropriation was defeated by a 
55% to 45% margin. Initially in 
the Student Senate, it only passed 
by one vote. Some people at the 
time felt that the main reason it 
was defeated was because the Sen- 
ate declined to put it on referen- 
dum, not because the majority of 
students did not consider the 
$10,000 appropriation was not a 
desirable and legitimate student 

The INDEX budget of $92,534 
also received student approval 
during a Spring referendum. Sen- 
ate opinion In these two situations 
pretty accurately reflected under- 
graduate attitudes. Despite It's oc- 
casional Ineptness, It seems far 
more capable of judging under- 
graduate needs than the Chan- 
cellor. 

Although the Chancellor and the 
Board of Trustees have the final 
authority over the Student Activi- 
ties tax, it might be wiser for 
them not to Interfere. Students, 
through their representative body, 
the Senate, generally have made 
respectable decisions concerning 
their own fiscal policy. If the ad- 
ministration were truly perceptive 
concerning student attitudes, then 
they should have been able to 
establish guidelines concerning 
expanding funds off-campus before 
It became a "problem". This sum- 
mer seems no time for "ex post 
facto" Interference. 



The Summer Statesman Reviews 

A Yiddish Fair And Good Old American 




In his autobiographical book, 
THE GREAT FAIR, Sholom Alei- 
chem, the great Yiddish author of 
the nlr .^enth century, gives us a 
view of Lfe in Voronko, a Jewish 
village in Russia. He presents us 
with the town and its citizens, the 
"humpbacked, cold, synagogue," 
the treasure buried by the seven-, 
teenth- century revolutionary, the 
pious men of the village, the ro- 
gues, the children, and all of the 
incidents which go into making this 
a work of joy and laughter. 

In one of his stories, for exam- 
ple, we learn to Feigeleh the 
witch. Witch is a word in Yiddish 
used to denote a loose woman, 
and Feigeleh was just that. A 
servant of Sholom 's cousins, she 
was brought to Voronko during the 
festivals of Rosh Hashonah and 
Yom KioDur. At first she be- 
friended Sholom and his bro- 
thers. After winning their con- 
fidence, however, she began tell- 



ing the:., atories of demons, evil 

spirits, and ghosts. She told of a 
tickling witch who had killed over 
a hundred people by tickling them 
to death. She proceeded to demon- 
strate this form of witchcraft on 
Sholom and his brothers, following 
the demonstration with kisses and 
embraces. Feigeleh's story did 
not stop there, however. 

Deciding that scarring lltUe boys 
was not enough, she wanted to 
frighten some adults. The Lif- 
shltz's, Sholom's cousins, wrong 
the targets. In the middle of the 
night she would wander through 
the house making strange noises, 
upsetting things, and stealing val- 
uables. In the morning everyone 
thought that some kind of Hobgob- 
lin or poltergeist had been there. 

This lasted until Sholom's fa- 
ther and uncle came for a visit. 
Stating that no matter what else 
the Rabinowitz's were, they were 
not afraid of spirits, they set a 



trap for Feigeleh. During the 
night she again wandered through 
the house. This time, however, 
she was caught. The next scene, 
that of the fiery Feigeleh strug- 
gling with the two brawny men 

was hilarious. 

After subduing her and making 
her give the things she had stol- 
en, the men decided that the best 
thing for her was marriage. They 
found her a husband, and mar- 
ried her off. Later she became 
a proper matron. 

The story of Feigeleh, like all 
of the other stories contained in 
"The Great Fair" is told with 
wit and compassion. Sholom Alei- 
chem has the ability to describe 
the truth about human failings 
and weaknesses, while still pre- 
serving an essential^ dignity for 
man. By emphasizing the com- 
mon humanity of the characters 
while at the same time showing 
their faults, we are able to feel 
both empathy and disdain for them.

"Festival: The Book of American Music Festivals", 
(Collier Books. $3.95 paperback), photos by Jim Marshall 
and Baron Wollman, text by Jerry Hopkins. 

The music festival has become one of America's most natior^ 
entertainment mediums. And this is an attempt to prove that the 
Festival is an enduring custom. It succeeds fairly weU at being a 
relatively Interesting chronicle. ... . . ^„,«i„ 

Probably the best thing the book does is not to concentrate solely 
on Woodstock without which the book wouldn't have been written. 
Festival includes details about not just rock festivals, but also the many 
jazz, folk, country and western, classical and blues festivals that dot 
Anipric3. 6^cti sumniGr 

Also the photography Is superb, with the highlight being the includ- 
ing candid shots of not only name rock stars (The Who, CSN&Y Joan 
Baez etc.) but also some of the great bluesmen like Son House, Muddy 
Waters, Big Mama Thornton, Howlin Wolf, and Nathan Beauregard. 
These photos, if nothing else make the book worth buying. . 

However Hopkins* copy is the low point. The RoUing Stone contn- 
buter gets' too caught up in "gee whiz" euphemisms about how great 
such and such was at such and such a concert. He obviously intends 
the text for readers unfamiliar with the musicians overlooking the fact 
that the people who'll buy the book will be music fans who know every- 
thing about their favorite stars. Too often, therefore, Hopkins, Is 
embarrassingly simple in his text. . . ^ , . 

However he gives a fairly insightful report of backstage maneuver- 
ing and planning of some of the first big festivals and also a fairly 
interesting history of the music festival. 

The author seems strongly affected, though by the typical rock, mind 
of "love peace, we're artists, we don't want the money, we just play 
our music*' crap that is revolting. He fairly chorties with glee, des- 
cribing The Who's Peter Townsend, whacking Abbie Hoffman off the 
Woodstock stage as Hoffman tried to explain the jailing of John Sin- 
clair for 10 years for possession of one joint. The show must go on, 
right Mr. Hopkins? . ^ ^ 

He also describes how many festivals are ruined because pro- 
moters want to make profits. He falls to explain tiiat his beloved rock 
stars are demanding five figure contracts. He condemns the act that 
tickets are so expensive but also condemn the unruliness of people 
seeking to make his festivals free. And he overlooks the ruthlessness 
of managers that refuse to put their groups on stage unless they are 

paid first. ^ , , . 

The author comes off as a phony, which most rock people do come 
off as. And this makes the book pretty hard to read at times. Hop- 
kins should have kept his commentary to a historical, reporting level, 
rather than trying to be social theorist. 

But despite the obnoxious text at times, the photography still makes 
the book worth it all.

Hoover Brands Black Panthers 
*Most Dangerous' of Extremists 



WASHINGTON —The Federal Bureau of Investigation today branded the 
the country's "most dangerous and violence-prone of all extremist groups." 

It also called the Weatherman faction of the Students for a Democratic Society 
guiding the country's violence-prone young militants." 

During the fiscal year 1970, 

A leader of the Panthers in 



Black Panther party as 
'a principal force 



the F.B.L said in its annual re- 
port, "the Weatherman group was 
in the forefront of much of ttie 
activity delil)erately calculated to 
provoke violent confrontations." 
- The 22-page report, issued by 
J. Edgar Hoover, director, cov- 
ered, the major activities of the 
agency during the last 12 
months. It dealt separately with 
organized crime, aircraft hijack- 
ings and other areas of F.B.I. 
concern, A considerable section 
was devoted to protest demon- 
strations and militant activity. 

"Mr. Hoover deplored the fact 
that, despite its record of hate, 
violence, and subversion the Black 
Panther party continues to receive 
substantial monetary contributions 
from prominent donors," the re- 
port said. 

It also charged that "foreign 
influences" were making "in- 
roads in certain black extrem- 
ist groups in the United States, 
particularly the Black Panther 
Party." 

Although the nature of the "for- 
eign influences" was not detailed, 
the report noted that Eldridge Cl- 
eaver, the party's Minister of In- 
formation, was presently living in 
Algiers to avoid criminal prose- 
cution in this country. The report 
said Mr. Cleaver had traveled tc 
North Korea last September anc 
"has also developed close ties with 
Al Fatah, the Arab guerrilla or- 
ganization." 

Mr. Cleaver was the only 
Black Panther mentioned by name. 
Most of the other party leaders 
are in jail or in exile. 

Although the report referred to 
pending criminal trials in New 
Haven, Baltimore and New York 
against Black Panthers, it made no 
mention of the Chicago police raid 
on a Panther apartment last De- 
cember that aroused considerable 
resentment against police tactics. 



Illinois, Fred Hampton, was killed 
in the raid. A special grand jury 
has been called to investigate the 
conduct of the police. 

In discussing the Weatherman 
faction, the F.B.I, did not deal 
with numbers, but it said that 
leaders had apparently decided to 
build "a small para-military or- 
ganization designed to carry out 
urban guerrilla warfare." 

Weatherman members are be- 
lieved to have gone ' 'underground" 
following a general meeting in Feb- 
ruary, the report states. 

The principal activities of Wea- 
therman members were described 
as a number of demonstrations 
last October in Chicago, a demon- 
stration the following month at the 
Department of Justice here and 
several publicized visits to Cuba. 
"Mr. Hoover reported that there 
was a sharp increase in protest 
demonstrations on college cam- 
puses during the school year of 
1969-70," the report noted. It said 
1,785 demonstrations took place. 
According to the F.B.I.'s fig- 
ures, sit-ins and building seiz- 
ures numl)ered 313 and there were 
281 attacks on Reserve Officers' 
Training Corps installations. 

The report said that 462 injuries 
resulted from protest demonstra- 
tions on college campuses, "nearly 
two-thirds of which were sus- 



tained by police and college offi- 
cials." 

The report said "eight indivi- 
duals" were killed in the disrup- 
tions, but it was not immediately 
clear whether they were students. 

The injury figure was disputed 
by Dr. John Spiegel, director of 
the Lemberg Center for the Study 
of Violence at Brandeis University. 

"These figures can not possi- 
bly be accurate," Dr. Spiegel ch- 
arged, since the police dutifully 
record every injury in their ranks, 
while students do not. 

A preliminary count by the cen- 
ter reflects that injuries are about 
evenly divided between police and 
college officials on the one hand, 
and demonstrators on the other. 

Other major areas listed by the 
F.B.I, were the following: 

Communist party, U.S. A. --The 
report said the party had launched 
a new youth group, the Young Wor- 
kers Liberation League, last Feb- 
ruary in an effort "to close the 
generation gap that exists today in 
the party." 

The Yablonski murders --Mr. 
Hoover noted that five persons 
were arrested as a result of F.B.I, 
investigation into the deaths of 
Joseph A. Yablonski, his wife and 
dau^ter. Mr. Yablonski lost a 
heated race for the presidency of 
the United Mine Workers of Amer- 
ica just before his death.

Amherst Tax Down But Assessments Rise 



The tax rate for Amherst has 
decreased by $10.50 but because 
of 60 per cent increase in pro- 
perty valuation it may cost town 
residents more for real estate 
taxes this year than last. 

Assessors reported today that 
they have approved the $32.50 
rate, which is down from last 
year's tax rate of $43. It is an 



even more substantial drop from 
what would have been this year's 
rate if a revaluation of property 
hadn't been made. 

Thus the over -all decrease in 
the rate is $16.50 or about 33 per 
cent. But value of property in 
town has been increased from $78 
million to $125 million, or about 
60 per cent. 



A theoretical house valued at 
$10,000 last year would have paid 
$430 in taxes last year and under 
the $49 rate this year would have 
paid $490 in taxes. 

But with revaluation that house 
may now be worth $16,000 and 
under the lowered rate of $32.50 
would pay $520 a year in taxes. 



or $90 more than last and $30 
more than if the revaluation had 
not been accomplished and the rate 
allowed to go up to $49. 

But increased revenue is the 
need, it was noted, with the town 
requiring $6,124,986 to operate 
this year, $1,102,311 more than was 
needed last year.

Tippo, Elters Meet Today 

Senate Prexy Sees Thaw In Budget Freeze 



student Senate President Glenn 
Elters, scheduled to meet with 
Chancellor Tippo today to discuss 
the controversy over the Senate's 
proposed Student Activities Tax 
for the coming year, said yester- 
day that he believes the time is 
right for a compromise between 
the Chancellor and the students. 




"I am prepared to assure the 
Chancellor that next year's tax 
will not rise above $40 dollars, 
ard that if a larger increase In- 
comes necessary in the future, we 
will place it on a student- wide re- 
ferendum." 

But, he continued, "We feel that 
this year's tax can not be tampei - 
ed with. . .it must be enacted as 
passed by the Senate." 

Tippo, stating his concern for 
the seven dollar hike in the pro- 
posed tax and his uneasyness at 
having a part of the student levy 
pay for "off campus social act- 
ion groups", last week froze app- 
roximately $56,000, pending ap- 
proval of the Board of Trustees. 

Tippo said the University risked 
a "tax-payers revolt" on the part 
of students who did not wish to have 
a part of their tax monies go to- 
ward funding the off campus 
groups. 

He has scheduled the Trustees* 
Finance committee to hear argue- 
ments on the proposed tax next 
Monday, and has placed the issue 
on the agenda for the full Board 
meeting on August 10th.

President, have been arguing for

Students to Attend 
National Conference 

UMass will be represented at the National Student Congress, for the 
first time this year, which begins August 9 in Macalester College in 

St. Paul, Minnesota. , .w xt *• 

The University has just recently become a member of the National 
Student Association, and it therefore is entitled to send delegates 
to the workshops, seminars and plenary session of the twenty -third 
annual meeting of over 500 member student governments from across 

the country. ,, ^ ^ ^^ „ , .. 

Student Senate President Glenn Elters will head the University 
delegation which also includes Tom Spriggs, Lee Sandwenand Tim Ney. 

Among the national figures which are expected to be at the con- 
ference are New York senator Charles Goodell, Black Panther Minis- 
ter of Information Elridge Cleaver (via telephone from Algeria), 
Black civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, United Auto Workers presi- 
dent Leonard Woodcock, and as yet un-named members of the Chi- 
cago Ei^t. ,. , . J 

The conference is expected to explore such critical issues as edu- 
cational reform, campus governance, utilizing the media, student legal 
rights, and strengthening student economic development on campus. 

Also national problems as racism, sexism, the environment, Ameri- 
can Foreign Policy, Poverty and the pUght of the American working- 
man will be delved into. 

Fund raising, and moWUzing community support for student ac- 
tions will also be discussed.

ing funds earmarked for the so 
called off campus social action 
groups. And at a meeting last 
Thursday between Tippo and re- 
presentatives from several R.S.O. 
groups, the students made it clear 
that the majority of the expendi- 
tures which the Chancellor is ques- 
tioning are not. in their opinion. 




"off campus social action groups." 

Among the groups the Chancellor 
has questioned are the N.E.A.S. 
tutoring program and the Spring- 
field Street Academy. Student ar- 
gued that these groups are primar- 
ily educational and not political. 

Elters also argued, "We have 
been told that the motto of the 
University is " 'The State is Our 
Campus'. In this light these edu- 
cational groups can not really be 
considered off campus since they 
educate people on 'our campus!." 

At that meeting, two R.S.O. 
groups which were not challenged 
by Tippo. the DAILY COLLEGIAN 
and the Univecsity Mobilization 
Committee announced "that they 
would voluntarily freeze their bud- 
gets until the Trustees decide on 
the fate of the "community act- 
ion groups." 

DAILY COLLEGRN Editor-in- 
Chief Peter F. Pascarelli ex- 
plained, "I was disappointed with 
the manner in which the meeting 
was conducted and feel that all 
groups under the venue of the Stu- 
dent Senate tax should remain to- 
gether in all dealings concerning 



the SATF controversy." 

"This was not done as a coer- 
sive tactic against the Chan- 
cellor," he added, "but rather it 
was a means of supporting what we 
feel are necessary and important 
campus groups."

Ruth and Kerry, a folk singing 
couple from Europe, will be ap- 
pearing tonight at 8 p.m. at the 
Student Union Pond as part of the 
University's Summer Program. 

The couple's music ranges from 
traditional folk songs and modern 
ballards to their own original com- 
positions, and observers say their 
relaxed humorous approach gives 
their work an added charm. Hav- 
ing travelled extensively in Eur- 
ope, they give their music an in- 
ternational flavor. 

The international aspect of their 
music had already begun develop- 
ing when they met. Ruth, a young 
American sculptress, on holiday 
from her studies at a Fine Arts 
school in London, and Kerry, a 
young British artist, met in St. 
Tropez on the French Riviera. 

They played their guitars and 
sang together socially. Their 
popularity grew to such an extent, 
that they eventually decided to sing 
together professionally. 

The turning point in their car- 
eer came when Bridgett Bardot 
heard them sing. She was im- 
pressed and introduced them to 
influential people in the recording 
industry. They were invited to and 
did record an L.P. and a single 
for Polydor in Germany. 

From there they travelled th- 
roughout Europe, appearing on 
Radio, T.V. and at concerts and 
after a sixteen week tour, they went 
to London. It was there that they 
received an offer from an Ameri- 
can restauranteur who wanted them 
to appear in one of his hotels. 
They came to the U.S. for a three 
week tour and remained. They 
are currently living in the U.S.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



New Congress Begins Campaign 

The Movement for a New Congress, a national organization which supports congres- 
sional candidates who oppose the war and military spending and who endorse programs 
which would eliminate poverty and racism, is currently engaged in the Philbin-Driiian con- 
test in the Third Congressional District of Massachusetts. 

The group is supporting Drinan because, in the words of Ted Uurenson, one of the 
group's leaders, "he's capable, he has been deeply involved in anti-war activities and 
civil rights for a long time, and he has a very good chance of winning". 

In terms of actual performance both candidates have been involved with governmental 
affairs. Philip Philbin has been a member of Congress for 28 years. He is now the second 
ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee. 

Reverand Robert Brinan has 
been Dean of Boston College 
Law School since 1956. He has 
written numerous articles ana 
books on law and dissent. He has 
also served as Chairman of the 
Massachusetts Advisory Com- 
mittee to the U.S. Commission 
nf Civil Rights. 

The group is supporting Brinan 
because they feel that with his 
backround in civil rights and law, 
he will be able to effectively make 
his point of view known and acted 
upon in the Congress. It was the 
inability or unwillingness of other 
Congressmen to do just this that 
prompted the formation of the 
group in the first place. 

During the student strike last 
spring, a group of students 
whose avowed purpose was to elect 
anti-war candidates to Congress 
was formed at Princeton Univer- 
sity on May 4, The group soon 
expanded to a national level and 
became known as the Movement 
for a New Congress. 

The Amherst Group was founded 
separately at Amherst College on 
May 5. Originally entitled the Home 
and Summer Action Committee, the 
group found that its' goals were 
similar to those of the Princeton 
Group. They allied and the Am- 
herst group became regional head- 
quarters for Western Massachu- 
setts. 

The organization is headed by 
Ted Laurenson and Doug Neft 
According to Mr. Laurenson he has 
aK)roximately 200 people who are 
wiUing to work in the campaign 
activities, many of these people 
live out of state, however, and are 
unable to work on the campaigns 
here. People are needed here. 
The group will go canvassing in 
Gardner on Wednesday, July 23, 
and on Saturday, July 26.

HOLLYWOOD- U is obvious 
Hollywood are in trouble. The 



the motion picture companies in 
major studios are trying to outdo 
each other maldng'films about revolution, dope and sex in a des- 
Derate effort to attract the two major groups who stUl go to the 
movies— young people and dirty old men. 

Sampson P? Truberry. head of MTA (Miserable Twentieth Arts) 
studios, told me, "The motion picture industry has come of age. 
We are now making adult pictures which tell it like it is. The 
days of 'Sound of Music' and 'Gone With the Wind* are over." 

Truberry continued, "When I took over this studio a year ago, 
we were losing $10 million a month. I made three movies— 
'Motorcycle Virgin,' 'Key Club' and 'Molotov Cocktail'— and now 
we're in the black. The studio is booming now. Come on, I'll 

take you around." xk * *». 

We went to Stage 5. As we came on the set, there were a man 
and a woman taking a bath. Truberry whispered to me, "This is 
one of our big Christmas pictures. It's Christmas Eve, and they've 
just finished trimming the tree, so they've decided to take a 
bath together." „ , ^. ^^ , 

"Are they married?" I whispered back. 

Truberry shook his head. "They're brother and sister, dummy." 

"1 should have known." 

Truberry said, "You see the director? He's the hottest thing 
in Hollywood. He used to make stag movies for fraternity houses; 
was arrested seven times; did six years in prison, now he gets 
half a mUlion dollars a picture, and we've got him signed for five." 

Someone yelled, "Quiet on the set!" and we walked over to 
Stage 9. When we opened the door, a din of rock music almost 
knocked us off our feet. 

This time Truberry had to shout, "This one's titled 'Beyond 
the Valley of Woodstock.' Everyone's stoned in the movie from 
the beginning to end." 

"What's the story?" I shouted back. 

"There's no story, dum-dum," he shouted. "Everyone does 
his own thing." 

The smoke from the pot was getting to me, so 1 went outside to 
get some fresh air. Truberry followed. "They never knew how to 
make pictures like this in the old days," he said. 

While we were standing there, we heard fire engines and saw 
a gigantic blaze pouring out of the administration building of the 
studio. We ran toward it and saw a wild young man screaming 
into a megaphone: "Keep those fire trucks out of the way. We're 
shootinsT 3. sccnGl" 

Truberry ran up to him. "Jerry, what the hell are you doing?" 

"We're shooting the final scene of 'Down With Everything.' 
It's a helluva blaze, huh boss?" 

"There was nothing in the script about you burning down 
the administration tniilding." 

"We're improvising. Man, what a finish!" 

An assistant director ran up. "Jerry, do you want to throw 
some dummy Ixxiies on the fire?" 

"Are you kidding? There is nothing fake about this movie. Throw 
in Truberry here." 

Two grips picked up Truberry and started carrying him toward 
the fire as he scream^. 

"Let's get it right on the first take!" Jerry yelled into his 
megaphone. "We may not find anyone to do it again."

Rise In Unifonnity Noted Among Nation's Collides 



By M. A. FARBER 
(From the N. Y. Times) 

A study conducted for the Carnegie Commission on Hi^er Education 
has found that colleges and universities are becoming increasingly 
uniform and are creating a "monolithic status system" prizing aca- 
demic speciallzatioo. 



' 'The heralded diversity in Ame- 
rican hi^er education may still 
be a fact, but it is becoming a 
declining force," a report on the 
study said. 

"Institutions of higher learn- 
ing are becoming more like each 
other than was true in the oast." 
the report said. This trend, it; 

added, "calls into question the 
great faith we have in the plura- 
listic nature of American higher 
education." 

Clark Kerr, chairman of the 
Carnegie Commission, described 
the new analysis as "the most 
comprehensive study ever made 
of change" in the country's pri- 
vate, public and sectarian col- 
leges and universities. 

The report, distributed this 
week, was based primarily on the 
results of a questionnaire com- 
pleted in 1968-69 by presidents 
of approximately half of the na- 
tion's 2,500 degree-granting in- 
stitutions of higher learning. 

Among the general conclusions 
of the report, which offered no 
recommendations, were the fol- 
lowing: 

There is a widespread move- 
ment for institutions to offer ever 
more advanced degrees, witti stu- 
dents and faculty being reward- 
ed according to the extent of their 
specialized interests and compe- 
tence. 

Colleges and universities are 
becoming mor^ -open" to well- 
educated, midii -class minority 
youths than to socially and eco- 
nomically low..-! -Ciass youths of 



any race. 
Despite 
sumption' 
are not 



a ' cei:T.only held as- 
to ;hfc c>r.!.rary, there 
'majior iif:' rences in 
educational institutio;.s in differ- 
ent sections of the country." 

The "homogenization" of high- 
er education is affecting public, 
private and church -related insti- 
tutions, although public institu- 
tions contribute a "vocational, 
pragmatic and utilitarian complex- 



ion" that is not fully matched in 
the other sectors. 

Size of student enrollment is the 
chief determinant of differences 
among college and universities, 
larger institutions having under- 
gone the most extensive changes. 

On the whole, college and uni- 
versity persidents regard increas- 
ed faculty and student control over 
institutional affairs as the most 
important campus change in the 
last decade. 

The study, entitled "institutions 
in Transition," was carried out 
under the direction of Dr. Harold 
L. Hodgkinson of the Center for 
Research and Development in 
Higher Education at the University 
of California at Berkeley. 

Its sample, which Dr. Hodg- 
kinson said was "representa^ 
tive" of all American colleges 
and universities included 520 small 
institutions (under 1,000 students); 
475 medium (1,000 to 5,000); 128 
large (5,000 to 15,000); 31 giant 
(15,000 to 25,000) and 9 "super" 
(25,000 and over). 

Dr. Hodgkinson said the study 
was intended to "fill a gap about 
the kinds, numl)ers and dynamics 
of change" in higher education. 

About two-thirds of all colleges 
and universities indicated a growth 
in quality of student preparation in 
high school over the last decade. 

Half of the institutions said that 
the proportion of students com- 
pleting undergraduate degree re- 
quirements was rising; and 73 per 
cent said the proportion of gradu- 
ating students planning to con- 
tinue their education was going up. 

More than three -fourths of the 
colleges and universities said that 
faculty involvement in setting in- 
stitutional policies was mounting, 
while 63 per cent reported an in- 
crease in the amount of student 
"control" over these policies, 
"School spirit among students was 
seen as rising in 9 per cent of 
the institutions. 

More than 40 per cent of the 



colleges and universities indicated 
growth in the proportion of mar- 
ried students, transfer students 
and out-of-state students over the 
last 10 years. 

Forty-two per cent of the insti- 
tutions said the proportion of their 
faculties on tenure had increased. 
Almost one -fourth noted a decline 
in the average age when tenure is 
awarded, "reflecting an increase 
in upward faculty mobility and in- 
stitutional attempts to get good 
young men to stay on." 

About one -third of all colleges 
and universities cited an increase 
in faculty commitment toward re- 
search and in hours spent on re- 
search, while commitment towards 
teaching rose in only 19 per cent 
of the institutions and actual hours 
spent in teaching declined in 41 
per cent. 

More than two -thirds of the in- 
stitutions said that faculty efforts 
to improve general contact with 
students and faculty willingness 



to try new teaching methods were 
increasing. 

But only 38 per cent of the col- 
leges and universities reported an 
increase in faculty willingness to 
accept student course evaluations 
and only 29 per cent said that 
progressors' support for students 
who were opposing administra- 
tion policies had grown. 

More than one -third of the in- 
stitutions indicated an increase 
in the proportion of their faculty 
members who were advocating po- 
sitions on national affairs. 

"This would seem to be a very 
recent phenomenon that has 
emerged in connection with the 
Vietnam war," Dr. Hodgkinson 
said. 

The oroDortion of alumni dona- 
tions to total budgets has increased 
in one -fifth of the institutions, 
the study showed, but the propor- 
tion of Federal support for the bud- 
gets has risen in more than half 
the institutions in the last decade. 



College and university presi- 
dents listed the following as the 
most important changes on their 
campuses, in ttiis order of fre- 
quency; increase In faculty and 
student authority; new and spe- 
cial academic program; compo- 
sition of the student body; growth 
of institution and recruitment of 
faculty interests, administrative 
reforms; sources of funding, and 
alterations to physical plant. 

Of the more than 200 presidents 
who mentioned developments in in- 
ternal authority as the most signi- 
ficant change, 126 emphasized in- 
creased faculty authority over in- 
stitutional affairs and 100 cited a 
growth in student control. 

While more than 100 presidents 
regarded changes in academic pro- 
grams as the major development, 
only two specified programs for 
disadvantaged students and none 
stressed black studies or pro- 
grams for black students as be- 
ing most important.

Facing Up To Problems 

The significance of last week's hearings of the President's Commission on Campus Un 
rest seems somehow too easily lost in the solitude of Amherst's sticky summer weather. 
The student anger and frustration which crested after Nixon's entrance into Cambodia and 
the bullet riddled bodies of the slain and wounded students of Kent State University and 
of Jackson State has not really been very apparent during the summer interlude. 



To the Editor: 

Although I am a graduate stu- 
dent and do not pay the under- 
graduate student tax, I would like 
to offer both to your readers and 
Chancellor Tlppo an approach to 
the tax problem which might lead 
to a solution. ,,rhan 

First of all, I do not think Chan- 
cellor Tippo should have anything 
to do with the way the student tax 
money is used since this money 
Is collected by authority of the 
Student Senate for use by the stu- 
dents themselves. Those parents 
who have written complaints should 
be told politely that their gnpe is 
with the Senate and not with the 
Chancellor. ^ ^ 

The idea of having students pay 
only for those activities or ser- 
vices they actually use has cer- 
tain limitations which can not be 
overcome except in a few special- 
ized cases. Many worthy organi- 
zations would be forced out of ex- 
istance because the cost of the ser- 
vices they render is far beyond the 
ability of their members to pay 
for these services. The idea of a 
student tax is that students will 
pay for the OPPORTUNITY of hav- 
ing these activities or services. 
It is not the fault of the various 
organizations that some students 
never take advantage of these 
opportunities. 

Any valid protest over payment 
of the student tax should come 
from the students themselves. Un- 
til an acceptable means of protest 
is found, the Student Senate will 
never be able to determine how the 
students really feel. 
My proposal for this very pro- 



blem draws it precedent from the 
Telephone Company. Some time 
ago, a number of persons decided 
to protest the Viet Nam war by 
refusing to pay the Federal Ex- 
cise Tax on their phone bills. 
The Telephone Company turned the 
names of these persons over to 
the Internal Revenue Service but 
did no t terminate the phone ser- 
vices of these subscribers. The 
Telephone Company was acting 
only as a convenient collection 
channel for the government and was 
not liable itself for the tax money. 
Up to now, collection of the stu- 
dent tax has been enforced by the 
University's power to suspend the 
registration of any student who did 
not pay his bill, including the tax. 
I believe the University should view 
its role as merely a convenient 
collection channel for the Student 
Senate. Using this philosophy, the 
University would not suspend the 
registration of any student for fail- 
ing to pay the student tax but would 
turn over these names to the Sen- 
ate. It would be most interesting 
to see how the Student Senate goes 
about collecting this money dir- 
ectly from the protesting students. 
If there is as much disagreement 
as Chancellor Tippo seems to think 
there is, the Senate would be for- 
ced to "revise" its budget com- 
mitments. All that would be re- 
quired would be a small note en- 
closed with the bills about to be 
mailed out which explained that, 
while the students are being billed 
for the tax, enforcement of the act- 
i!il collection would be the respon- 
sibility of the Senate and not of 
the University.

Body Language 

WASHINGTON- There is a book called "Body Language" which 
deals with the new science of kinesics, which is nonverbal com- 
munication. Julius Fast, the author, maintains that body gestures 
can tell more about a person than what he says. An unconscious 
movement, kinesics tells us, is all-revealing. ^ 

Fast is not the only person who is an expert on "Body Language. 
My friend. Dr. Heinrich Applebaum, has been working on a project 
There seems to be a feeling in the hearings that if America began to grapple with these f- -me time to find ^^^ if President Nixon's gestures tell more about 



Thus, much of the sense of urgency with which students view the war, and environ- 
ment poverty, and racism seems to have vanished in the eyes of many America s leading 
political figures and educators. In the hearings, previous student disorders were gener- 
ally blamed on the excessive tactics of student radicals, increasing opposition to the 
Indo-China War, the inflamatory rhetoric of Vice-I»resident Agnew and radical-activists and 
the lack of government action concerning the problems of poverty and racism in the na- 
tion. 



problems then the volume of campus disorders would decrease. 

Unfortunately, the discontent of students is not likely to decrease this fall and the 
reason is that the nation will probably continue to ignore its problems. 

Only when we have been confronted with overwhelming crises such as urban riots in 
1966 and student opposition to the Vietnam war, have we attempted to try to alleviate 
them. 

There has been little desire on the part of government or educational '"stitutions to 
deal with these problems before they became insurmountable or msolvable. Men like Na- 
than M. Pusey, president of Harvard, complain about the arrogance of the young. He 
complains about the "fascist tactics of the young radicals". Yet he was so remote from 
Harvard undergraduates that he was never able to perceive legitimate grievances and he 
only communicated with students when he was forced to by circumstances. 

He like many university presidents and chancellors, only attempted to amediorate a 
situation when their backs were up against the wall. That type of leadership encourages 
rampus unrest because it is not the type of leadership which can develop any feeling of 
community on campus. No durable peace or sense of commitment is likely to develop with 
that type of leadership, especially in times of crisis when it is sorely needed. 

Only when this nation attempts to positively act upon problems instead of merely re- 
acting negatively to crises will we achieve the unity and purpose which we obviously 
lack.

him than what he says. 

Dr. Applebaum has been watching every TV program that Presi- 
dent Nixon has appeared on and has come to some interesting con- 
clusions. 

"The President," Dr. Applebaum told me, "uses his body as 
well as anybody we've had in the White House. 1 have been able to 
interpret many of the gestures he makes." 

"Could you give me an example?" 

"Well, as you know, when he appears before large crowds he al- 
ways raises his arms out and upward. Most people have felt he does 
this to acknowledge the cheers. But subconsciously he is at the flood- 
gates trying to hold back the waves of inflation." 

"That's very interesting." 

*'l have noted also that President Nixon is a fist-clencher. When 
he's trying to make a point he clenches his fist and moves his arm 
up and down." 

"What could that mean?" „ 

"It means that he subconsciously would like to sock somebody. ' 

"I don't beUeve it." 

"It's true. If you recall in his TV appearance with John Chancel- 
lor, Eric Sevareid and Howard K. Smith a few weeks back, the Presi- 
dent was constantly clenching his fist. He started doing this after 
Howard K. Smith asked him what legal right did we have for being 
in Indochina, since the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution had been repealed. 

"He didn't want to sock Howard K. Smith, did he?" . 

"No, stupid. He wanted to sock someone on his staff who haun t 
prepared him for the question." 

"What else?" I asked. 

"The President is constantly using a karate chop when he's answer- 
ing a question at a press conference. He keeps cutting the air with 
the flat of his hand." 

"How do you explain it?" 

"In 1962 the President said the press wouldn't have Nixon to kick 
around any more. What he meant by that was he was going to take karate 
and make sure they didn't kick him. Naturally, as President, Mr. 
Nixon can't chop a reporter in the neck, so the gesture is symbolic 
of what he would like to do if he weren't in a position of responsi- 
bility." 

"I notice the President wrings his hands a lot when he's speaking. 

"Hand wringing is not uncommon for a President of the United 
States. I don't think you could put too mucn importance in P'"^^'^' 
dent Nixon wringing his hands. But you could be concerned when ne 
keeps his arms straight at his sides." 

"What does that mean?"

UNIVERSITY OF MA^ ^CHUSETTS 



Schools Feel Need to Halt Campus Anti-War Groups 



By THOMAS OLU'tiANT 
(From The Boston Globe) 
Under the watchful eye of the Internal Revenue Service, the Jus- 
tice Department and local property tax assessors* offices, uni- 
versities appeiir to be taking an increasingly firm line with stu- 
dents and faculty members who want to use campuses as a base 
for antiwar political activity. 

In the last two weeks, several moves have been made by univer- 
sities up and down the East Coast to restrict such activity. They 
have been too diverse to constitute a clear trend, but they are mak- 
ing moderate peace groups, who need cheap office space and equip- 
ment, more and more nervous. 

In one case, the New York regional chapter of the Movement for a 
New Congress--the principal campus-based group aiming at this 
fall's elections- -was given five days' notice to leave its offices 
at Columbia University. 

Ill other cases (Brandeis and MIT, for example), groups have 

been asked to leave but £:iven time to find space off campus. 

At some universities, peace groups engaging in political action 

that had been using offices for free (like at Princeton) are merely 

being asked to pay nominal rental fees. 

Finally some university officials (Boston University is a local 
example) 'at schools where there is no significant politicking now 
are making statements designedtoproscribe such activity this year. 
It wasn't always this way. . 

During the tension-filled days in early May, in the immediate 
aftermath of the invasion of Cambodia and the killings at Kent 
State universities bent over backwards to provide students with 
office space, duplicating machines, and meeting halls with little 
thought given to repayment. 



To some extent, this can be 
explained by the fact that hun- 
dreds of schools were on strike. 
It's also true that this wide- 
spread pattern of accommoda- 
tion prevailed at universities 
which returned to a semblance 
of normality later in the month. 

This also was the period dur- 
ing which the faculty at Prince- 
ton University adopted its plan 
to juggle dates on the academic 
calendar so that students could 
have two weeks off in C)ctol)er 
to work for congressional 
candidates without decreasing 
the number of formal school 
days. In rapid succession, 18 
other colleges made similar 
calendar adjustments while 
scores of others began serious- 
ly considering doing at least 
something along these lines. 

Even as the peace move- 
ment was preparing its first 
foray into politics since 1968, 
a reaction against its base on 
campuses began to be heard in 
Washington. 

On May 13, Sen. Strom Thur- 
mond (R-S.C.) inserted into the 
Congressional Record an arti- 
cle that had appeared in the De- 
troit Free Press describing the 
activities at Princeton. In so 
doing, he wondered aloud whe- 
there universities weren't com- 
promising their tax-exempt 
status, whereupon the Internal 
Revenue Service said it was 
"looking into the matter." 



That same week, an item ap- 
peared in the newsletter of the 
Republican Congressional 
Campaign Committee citing the 
same newspaper article and 
quoting an unnamed "high" IRS 
official as saying "if I were 
a counsel for a school 1 would 
recommend against this type 
of activity." 

By mid -June, officials of the 
IRS and the Justice Depart- 
ment were holding meetings 
with small groups of educa- 
tors at which attempts were 
made to agree on some general 
ground rules. 

These attempts appear to 
have succeeded because on June 
20, the American Council on 
Education issued a set of guide- 
lines to its 1600 member col- 
leges and universities. These 
guidelines were released with 
a statement from IRS Com- 
missioner Randolp*! Thrower 
that they were "fair and rea- 
sonable." 

The guidelines said in effect 
that the Princeton Plan was 
all right as long as the missing 
school days were made up 
somehow. Office space and 
equipment, they said schools 
must collect "proper and ap- 
propriate charges" when stu- 
dent groups "extend their acti- 
vities beyond the campus and 
intervene or participate in cam- 
paigns on behalf of candidates 
for public office." 



However, the guidelines left 
dangling what may Income the 
most important question- - 
namely whether groups like the 
Movement for a New Congress 
can use space indefinitely, even 
if they pay for it. 

All they said was that "ex- 
traordinary and prolonged use 
of facilities, particularly by 
non- members of the university 
community ... might raise ques- 
tions." 

Finally, they went off on what 
some oDservers feel is a 
strange tangent by appearing to 
sanction "traditional" campus - 
based political organizations 
that regularly work for candi- 
dates, which most university 
officials took to mean groups 
like the Young Democrats and 
Young Republicans. 

On most campuses, the guide- 
lines have produced almost no 
friction between anti-war stu- 
dent political groups and their 
hosts. For example, at Prince- 
ton, where the Movement for a 
New Congress has its national 
office in the basement of a uni- 
versity building, the students 
fully expect to pay rent. 

Even at MIT, where the move- 
ment's regional center moved 
off campus with more than tacit 
encouragement from the ad- 
ministration, there has been no 
discernible enmity. 

The move by Columbia, how- 
ever, seems to have caught the 
movement by surprise. The un- 
iversity apparently based its 
decision to evict the movement 
on the guidelines but persis- 
tent efforts by The Globe to get 
a formal statement explaining 
the move have been unsuccess- 
ful. 

Last week, Boston University 
appeared to be lining up with the 
hardliners. In a statement to 
students, faculty, and staff 
members, Acting Preisent Cal- 
vin Lee said they must "avoid 
any actions implicating the uni- 
versity in political activity. 
". . . Anyone associated 
with P/Dston University who car- 
ries on political activity must 
make it clear that he does so 
as an individual and not in the 
name of Boston University. 
University facilites may not be 
used for such purposes." 

To make matters more com- 
plicated, local property tax as- 



sessors, at least in Greater 
Boston, appear to be getting into 
the act. 

The best -known example is in 
Waltham, where the assessing 
office objected to the use of 
Pearlman Hall at Brandeis Un- 
iversity as the headquarters 
of the National Student Strike 
Information Center. 

The dispute came to a head 
when the town assessed the 
building at $92,500, leaving the 
university open to a property 
tax bill of $10,000. The as- 
sessment was withdrawn last 
Tuesday, but only after the 
strike information center 
moved off campus. 

Now, it appears that the City 
of Boston may also be getting 
involved. A pAione call Friday 
to the assessing office here re- 
vealed that all schools owning 
property in the city have been 
asked to report the extent to 
which their faciUties are be- 
ing used by political action 
groups. 

A spokesman for the office 
said replies are still being sift- 
ed and that as a result no de- 
cision would probably be made 
on how to proceed until later 
this week. 

He made a point of noting, 
though, that in all the replies 
he had seen, universities said 
they would "put a stop to any of 
this activity if they discovered 
it." He added that there is 
"ample precedent" for levy- 
ing a tax on a portion of a 
building if it's not being used 
for a tax-exempt purpose. 

Many student groups have 
said they see an element of 
harassment, especially at the 
national level, in all of this. 
For support, they cite the In- 
ternal Revenue Service Code, 
which turns out to be very va- 
gue on the subject. 

Repeatedly, the code's ban 
on lobbying and campaigning 
by tax-exempt organizations 
says that such activities be- 
come illegal when they com- 
prise a "substantial part" of 
the organization's overall work, 
which at a large university 
can involve educational and re- 
search programs costing hun- 
dreds of million dollars a year. 
Moreover, in the regulations 
the IRS has issued to carry 
out the code's provisions^ there 



is no firm definition of sub- 
stantial other than the use of 
phrases like "more than an 
insubstantial part..." 

The IRS and the Justice De- 
partment, however, deny they 
are acting l)ecause of political 
pressures and say they are only 
trying, as one official put it, 
to "protect everybody from 
running afoul of the law." 

At any rate, it would seem 
imperative that all remaining 
issues be resolved to the satis- 
faction of all parties — uni- 
versities, government, and stu- 
dents, too -- before the Fall 
term begins. 

"Can you imagine," one Co- 
lumbia student activist asked, 
"what kind of Hell could have 
broken loose here if Columbia 
had pulled a thing like this in 
late September instead of in 
July?"

"National Security'' Blanket 



It was easy to see after a day with delegates 
from the World Youth Council of the United 
Nations, why so many American embassies are 
stoned, why the Nelson Rockefellers, WUliam Ro- 
gers and Spiro Agnews are picketed, and why 
the United States was so easily condemned at 
the Youth Councils meeting in New York. 

Some 45 participants in what became a uis- 
honor America Rally at the United Nations visit- 
ed the UMass campus Sunday on their way tn- 
rough a whirlwind tour of Massachusetts. They 
were given a barbecue and beer and met some 
UMass students. They had previously visited lan- 
glewood and would visit Boston before leaving 
for their respective nations. 

WhUe the youths were anti-American govern- 
ment, thev were more than friendly to Ameri- 
can Souths. You realized then, that they were not 
prone to the American custom of type-castmg. 
In other words, they knew that all Americans 
aren't Richard Nixons. , ^^ ^ 

Their knowledge of the events of the past year 
in the U.S. was striking. One New Zealand youth 
said that his university held a one day strike m 
sympathy with the American student strike. He 
said "We have a feeling of awe toward American 
students, that they aren't more violent ta New 
Zealand youths are used to bemg responded to by 
their government. But in America it seems students 
are being repressed for being anxious to be heard 

The New Zealander though, had praise for 
Spiro Agnew in a back-handed way. "Agnew radi- 
calized many New Zealand youths durmg his visi 
to our country. And he caused the first incident 
of police brutality in New Zealand in recent 
metnory, when a crowd of demonstrators against 
him were set upon, by Police." 

The widely held belief of American racism, 
and class distinction was expressed best by a 



Russian, who commented, -Frankly while I have 
found America a better place than I was led to 
believe it is the most racist atmosphere I have 
ever encountered. And it seems, that to be young 
and with long hair makes you a second class 
citizen " 

The foreign youths had little argument with 
their American counterparts when they offered 
critical comment about their visit. The UMass 
youths were just as critical. The visitors did 
have some comments about UMass, the Southwest 
towers in particular. One was from a Singapore 
delegate who said, "they should have cut them in 
half or something. How can anyone live in some- 
thing that big. Why it would drive most people 
crazy. Whoever planned that place must have been 
'A s3,ddist " 

Probal)ly the biggest moment (sic) for the visitors 
was eating brownies with American flags stuck 
in them. It brought derison from most and the 
comment, "Does Nixon make you eat your flag?" 

It was in a sense an uplifting experience for a 
UMass student. It is easy to get insulated in 
beautiful downtown Amherst, and not know how 
the rest of the universe is reacting to everyday 
U.S. news. And there is a sense of unity among 
the different youths, who share their disbeliel 
and frustration with an American government that 
turns it back on youth. 

Perhaps it would do the Nixons, Agnews, etc. 
some good to talk with youths from overseas, 
since they won't talk to any from the States. 
They don't have to talk to Russians or Yugo- 
slavs. They talk to maybe somebody from oui 
dear and loyal allies from Australia or New 
Zealand. They would tell him that the word 
"America" means only war, agression, imperial- 
ism and repression to them.

All Chopin Concert Set 
For Bowker Wednesday 

The gifted young pianist Eugene Indjic will offer an all-Ctiopin re- 
cital in Bowker Auditorium Wednesday, July 22 at 8 p.m. as part of 
the University's Summer Arts Program, open to the public without 
charge. 

Mr. Indjic, a native of Yugoslavia now 23 years old, is considered 
by many leading pianists and conductors as one of the most promising 
of today's young artists. He graduate cum laude from Harvard Uni- 
versity in 1969 and maintained an extremely busy academic and musi- 
cal schedule throughout bis undergraduate days, including the per- 
formance of numerous recitals and appearances with orchestras 
throughout this country and abroad. 

Mr. Indjic's talent in music was discovered by his mother when 
the youngster was eight and a half. His first teacher was Mrs. Liubov 
Stephani of Springfield, Mass., with whom he studied until 1958. Other 
teachers included the late Benjamin Kalman of Springfield, Alexander 
Borovsky of Boston; Professors at the Juilliard School in New York 
as well as private lessons with such distinguished artists as Nadia 
Boulanger, Clifford Curzon, Artur Rubinstein and Leon Kirchner. 

Mr. Indjic has appeared as soloist with the Boston Symphony Or- 
chestra under Erich Leinsdorf, the Cincinnati Symphony, the Pitts- 
burgh Symphony, the Washington National Symphony and Boston Pops 
Orchestra under Arthur Fiedler. 

Mr. Indjic's program will include Sonata No. 3 in B Minor; three 
mazurkas; Scherzo in B flat Minor; three etudes; Nocturne No. 1 in 
C Minor and the famous Polonaise in A flat. 



Trustees Kama Dorms 
After Dead Trustees 



Three new residence halls at 
UMass have been named for form- 
er UMass Trustees, now deceased. 

At its last meeting, the Univer- 
sity's Board of Trustees voted 
to name the new buildings in honor 
of Harry Dunlap Brown, William 
M. Cashin, and Elizabeth L. Mc- 
Namara, 

Harry Dunlap Brown served as a 
Trustee from 1940 to 1968. He 
graduated from Massachusetts 
Agricultural College in 1914 and 
was awarded an honorary doctor 
of laws degree from UMass in 
1964. He received the Distin- 
guished Service Award from the 
Alumni Association in 1959 for 
tiis service as president and as 
a director of the Association. Mr. 



Brown was a director and clerk 
of the UMass Building Association 
and had served the Commonwealth 
as a Representative in the Gener- 
al Court from 1929 to 1934. Mr. 
Brown lived in Hyannis. 

William M. Cashin was appoint- 
ed a University Trustee in 1949 
by Governor Paul Dever, and was 
reappointed in 1956 by Governor 
Christian Herter. He later serv- 
ed as one of the original Trustee 
members of the UMass Building 
Authority, and was a member until 
his death in July, 1969. He lived 
in Milton. 

Mrs. Elizabeth L. McNamara 
of Cambridge served as a Univer- 
sity Trustee from 1937 until her 
death in January, 1957.

UMass Nursery Studies 
Dutch Elm Disease 



Thousands of dead trees in neat 
rows give the UMass research 
nursery a strange look at this 
time of year. 

The dead trees are young elms 
delit)erately inoculated with Dutch 
elm disease fungus. Whole rows 
are killed this way each year as 
researchers from the UMass Shade 
Tree Laboratories search for a 
disease -resistant strain of elm. 

"This is an effort that goes 
back 10 years," explains Shade 
Tree Laboratories director Mal- 
colm A, McKenzie. "We don't 
look for trees that are immune- - 
we look for degrees of resis- 
tance that we can use as a basis 
for making crosses." 

The method is to give the di- 
sease to a whole crop of young 
elms, select the two per cent or 
less that show resistance and cross 
them with resistant strains from 
previous years. "We try to pro- 
duce as many different indivi- 
duals as possible and by a pro- 
cess of elimination weed out the 
less promising ones," Dr. Mc- 
Kenzie explained. 

The process starts with elm 
seed, gathered in early summer 
and sent to the Atomic Energy 
Commission's Brookhaven Na- 
tional Laboratory on Long Island. 
There the seed is treated with 
thermal neutrons. The idea is to 
change the genetic makeup of the 
seed chromosomes and possibly 
produce mutants resistant to dis- 
ease although so far no clearly 
resistant mutants have resulted. 

The seeds, back from Brook - 
haven, are set out in greenhouses 
over the winter. The young ehns 
are transplanted to the research 
nursery at the west end of the 
Amherst main campus and at the 
UMass nursery in Belchertown. 
The young trees grow up to five 
years, awaiting their date with 
the Dutch elm fungus. 

The UMass elms get the disease 
by inoculation at both sides of the 
trunk with a liquid containing a 
culture of the fungus. In nature, 
the fungus is transmitted by the 
elm bark beetle, which chooses 
diseased elm trees as the place 
to lay its eggs. The result is that 
beetles hatch in the spring load- 
ed with fungus spores which are 
passed to healthy elms as the in-

sects feed on the tender new bark. 

The elm disease was first dis- 
covered in Holland in 19 19, spread 
to this country by 1930 and now 
kills an estimated 400,000 trees 
a year in the U. S. The fungus 
chokes the vascular system, first 
sign of which is a wilting and 
yellowing of leaves at about this 
time of year. Spread of the fun- 
gus can kill a tree in one season 
or in the case of older trees, in 
several years. 

In its search for a disease - 
resistant strain, the UMass Shade 
Tree Lab is working with foreign 
varieties as well as local strains 
and has research plots of Sil)erian 
elms. Buisman elms. Carpathian 



elms and others. In all the lab 
has some 9500 elms growing in 
Amherst and Belchertown. 

The result? "We've done a lot 
of work without too much to show 
in the way of results," Dr. McKen- 
zie admits. "We try to avoid any 
premature claims about a resis- 
tant strain," he added, explaining 
that very often what may seem to 
be a resistant tendency in a tree 
often turns out to be only the 
natural resistance of a young tree 
growing rapidly. Another Shade 
Tree Laboratory staff member. 
Dr. Francis W. Holmes, predicts 
that it will be well into the 1980's 
and 1990's before resistant va- 
rieties are available in quantity. 



Hailed Paperback Set To Roll 



A new paperback edition of a 
widely -hailed novel by University 
visiting professor George Cuomo 
has just been published by Avon 
books. 

"Among Thieves," a Literary 
Guild Selection when it was pub- 
lished in 1968, already has over 
200,000 copies in print in hard- 



cover editions. 

The novel is a study of the lives 
of three men, all of whom are 
drawn into the elimactic incident 
in the book, a violent distrubance 
in prison. 

The author describes the novel 
as an attempt to deal with "both 
the psychological and social roots

our attitudes toward such things 
as crime and punishment." The 
book was the result of four and a 
half years of work, Including 
a great deal of research dealing 
with criminals, law enforcement 
and prison conditions. 

Cuomo is a professor of Eng- 
lish at California State College 
at Hayward, on leave at the Am- 
herst campus. He is the author 
of two previous novels, "Jack Be

Summer Rep. Theater Seen Dull

I've never taken Speech 115, so I suppose that I'm an ignorant person; 1 don't back up my state-

Black Poets Featured 
n SW Forum'Thursday 



It seems to me that with the 
exception of a few musicals and 
Broadway plays, the drama that 
colleges have produced in the last 
few years has had the substance 
of diluted water. What is l)eing pro- 
duced are plays that are so re- 
plete with the symbolism, absur- 
dity, and microcosms of human 
life, that they bore the viewer to 
death. Instead of entertaining an 
audience, actors concentrate on 
remembering illogical lines, 
senseless blocking, pointless 
metaphors, and theatrical pronun- 
ciations. Audiences find themsel- 
ves walking out of the theater say- 
ing, "Gee, 1, uh, liked it" and re- 
fusing to admit that the perfor- 
mance was a waste of money, 
and that they missed a good Gary 
Grant movie on Channel 4. 

A typical non-entertaining play 
is "THIS PROPERTY IS CONDEM- 
NED**, one of the five plays pro- 
duced by the University Summer 
Repertory Theater. 

The plot of the play is as foll- 
ows: bov meets girl, girl tells 
life story, girl leaves, boy. Scatt- 
ered throughout this plot are trite 
similies ("The sky is as white as 
a clean piece of paper**) which 
prol)ably symbolize something, a 
stereotyped Southern girl-accent, 
Willie, (Does every Southerner 
really sound like Lady Bird John- 
son?), the Southern grunts of Tom, 
the boy, the pointless blocking of 
both characters (Willie paces up 
and down an embankment. Tom 
paces between his kite and Willie), 
and the crisp delivery and cues 
with no trace of sloppiness (lsn*t 
it funny how no one ever "uhs** 
or "mmms** in a play, why their 
delivery is just so perfect!). 

"HUGHIE", the second play on 
the bill, manages to keep the view- 
er awake only because of the ex- 



characterization and the 
occasional humor which the script 
provides. Once one realized that 
the exaggerated role of Erie Smith 
(Carl Pilo) was entirely plausible, 
one could listen to tiis remem- 
brances of Hughie with a sense of 
pity and true empathy. The dozing, 
bored. boy-how-much-longer-do-I 
have-to-listen- to-him acting of the 
night clerk (Brian Marsh) was not 
realistic, but superb. The play it- 
self, however, save for its humor- 
ous interjections, was as trite as 
"This Property is Condemned**. 
Man loses friend, man gains friend, 
although filled with psychological 
ramifications and hidden meaning, 
is certainly not a profound state- 
ment. 

The entertainment derived from 
"U.S.A.** does not come from what 
is done, but how it is done. A 
potpourri of America from 1900- 
1930, "U.S.A.'* is an attempt to 
sublimate historical events and to 
focus on people. Its conclusion, 
"U.S.A. is its people" is a great 
disappointment but only because 
the Repertory Theater, in full cast, 
did such an adequate job in the 
first two hours, that this scrip- 
tual deficiency was highlighted. 
The cast included Geralyn Will- 
iams who portrays a sort of sleezy, 
but pitiable and loveable bitch, 
Carlo Pilo, showing the develope- 
ment of the executive J.W., from 
the blue-eyed youth ward, Mary 
Robb Carr who looks like a UMass 
version of Audrey Hephurn, but ten 
times as enthusiastic, Joseph 

• Wilkins, who shows a versatile tal- 
ent for being different people, 
Brian Marsh, outstanding as Rudolf 

i Valentino, and bright twinkly eyed 
Virginia Cook as a poignant and 

I then patriotic Isadora Duncan 

I and Eleanor Stoddard. My only 
complaint with the cast was that 



they felt obliged to speak in a gawd- 
awful theatrical accent which does 
not recognize the existence of the 
flat, nasalized "a**, and was dis- 
turbing as well as monotonous. 

The idea of "U.S.A.** could have 
been a boring play. Several things 
saved it from the jaws of yawns, 
however: a semi- plot, musical 
interludes, and Laugh-In type cur- 
rent event interruptions which pro- 
vided renewing respites for thp 
audience. 

In a drought of entertaining 
drama, I hope that the standards 
of American theatre goers have 
not deteriorated. We can rational- 
ize our lower standards by saying 
that there was only one very great 
Shakespeare, but if theatre is to 
survive, we must all believe deep 
inside of us, that another Shake- 
speare is just around the corner, 
that drama can be good and meaty, 
without being dull.

Patriots Arrive 
Here For Practice 

The Boston Patriots arrived on campus, at least a small 
number of them did. Just the rookies are in camp right now, 
as the dispute between the player's association and the 
National Football League owners has kept the veterans out 

of camp. 

The Pats will be staying in James House during their 
stay, with meetings, physicals and photo sessions today 
and tomorrow, Thursday, regular practice sessions will be- 
gin, with or without the veterans, as Coach Clive Rush, 
emphasizes the need to get things rolling in part two of 
his rebuilding job. 

The year has to be the most hopeful the Patriots have 
experienced in the many uncertain and downtrodden years 
of the franchise. They will have a permanent home within 
the next two years, have a real football stadium to play in 
(Harvard) for the first time, they are members of the NFL 
have one of the most attractive schedules ever, with en- 
counters with the Baltimore Colts, New York Giants, Min- 
nasota Vikings, along with N.Y. Jets and K.C. Chiefs 
games, and most importantly, the nucleus of good young 
professional football team. 

This year's rookie crop should continue the success 
last year's yearlings had (among them Carl Garrett, Ron 
Sellers and Mike Montler.) Leading the pack is big Phil 
Olson, brother of Los Angeles quarterback slayer Merlin, 
and possibly the best rookie defensive line prospect in the 
NFL. Unfortunately, Olson injured his knee at a College 
All-Star game practice session and will probably miss a 
couple of weeks. Olson has got much of the publicity, but 
the Pats drafted a good bunch of other college stars, main- 
ly to shore up their defensive weaknesses. 

Among two of the best college linebackers are in the 
Patriot fold. Mike "Cat" Ballou, a first team All-American 
linebacker from UCLA and Bob Olson from Notre Dame 
should give the young, and versatile veteran linebacker 
crew a lot of competition. This, plus the fact that Rush 
employed a four linebacker crew at times, means the two 
rooks will see a lot of action. 

With Jim Nance's contract hold out still in earnest the 
value of fourth round draft choice fullback Eddie Ray be- 
comes important. The same holds true for Odell Lawson 
from Langston University, who could help, since Garrett 
will lose most of training sessions to his Army commit- 
ment. 

The Patriots, in addition, picked up a strong defensive 
line prospect in Purdue's Dennis Worgowski, a fine place 
kicker in Henry Brown from Missouri, among other rookie 
candidates, plus a host of free agents, the most well- 
known being former Yale magician Brian Dowlign. The Pa- 
triots were quite successful gaining valuable free agents a 

year ago. 

Practice sessions will all be open to the public without 
charge, and are held at the practice fields to the rear of 
Alumni Stadium. 

If the veterans settle their disputes, Nance signs his 
contract, Olson heals, and what looks like a raft of poten- 
tial in returning stars and rookies, you may be able to 
watch a developing championjnjhgjnaking 





h.D: It Has Become A Problem Degree 



For the first time in 
American educational and pro- 
fessional history, there is an 
over supply of Ph.D.'s Demands 
are growing that the univer- 
sities turn their attention from 
quantity to the need for a new 
kind of quality in doctorate pro- 
duction. 

The background of the prob- 
lem can, at least in part, be ex- 
plained in terms of numbers. 
In the past 10 years, the pro- 
duction of doctorates has trip- 
led; the annual output now is in 
the neighborhood of 25,000. 
While this may not seem a huge 
number as measured against a 
higher education enrollment of 
about seven million, it is a large 
group of people highly skilled 
in very specific fields of re- 

S6£LrC}l 

The number of college faculty 
members is about 500,000 and 
the Ph.D. is still considered a 
virtually ironclad requirement 
for tenure. But with the in- 
creases in college enrollments 
leveling off, and with fiscal 
pressures on Institutions re- 
sulting in something close to a 
Job freeze, only a fraction of 
the new KuD.'s can be ab- 
sorbed by this, their primary 
source of employment. 

At the same time, govern- 



ment- sponsored research on 
campuses and in Federal agen- 
cies is being cut back. Finally, 
industry is in a cycle of re- 
trenchment. In the past, 
research-oriented concerns, 
such as the chemical and aero- 
space industries, tended to 
overemploy new Ph.D.'s hoping 
by such talent hoarding to get 
the jump on competitors. 

What this means is that the 
largest area of employment op- 
portunities for Ph.D.'s in the 
next 5 to 10 years likely will 
be in the two remaining fields 
of maximum expansion: (1) the 
two-year community colleges 
which will be asked to absorb 
an even- greater portion of 
college freshmen and sopho- 
mores, and (2) the open ad- 
missions sector of state and 
municipal colleges which must 
take care of great numbers of 
marginal students with imper- 
fect high school education. 

The unhappy fact, however. Is 
that for these two areas of maxi- 
mum need, most Ph.D.'s are 
ill equipped. They are over- 
specialized and intellectually 
committed to that specialty. 
They have been rewarded en- 
tirely on the basis of their re- 
search capacity, rather than 
their teaching potential. 



Last week the Carnegie Cor- 
poration, which has in the past 
concerned itself with the search 
for excellence in schools and 
colleges, took a look at the doc- 
torate situation and the need for 
reform. On the question of past 
performance of Ph.D.'s as tea- 
chers, the Carnegie Quarterly 
said I 

"As Christopher Jencks and 
David Riesman pointed out in 
'The Academic Revolution,* no 
university would deny a compe- 
tent scholar a Ph.D.— and hence 
a license to teach- -even if he 
were known to be an incompe- 
tent teacher." 

In addition, the journal said, 
the conventional Ph.D. probably 
scares off good men and women 
who would be fine undergradu- 
ate teachers "but who have not 
the stomach for performing 
years of research on some 
minute topic." 

Moreover, the basic concept 
of a Ph.D. with its focus on 
the dissertation, often after 
years and sometimes ever a de- 
cade of laborious research and 
footnote collecting— is an ana- 
chronism in the context of the 
present mass production of doc- 
torates. 

In the case of so much dis- 
satlsfaction. why Ijave p ast ef- 



forts to reform the Ph.D. it- 
self or to establish separate, 
teaching - oriented degrees 
failed? 

Part of the answer is in the 
conservatism of institutions and 
departments dominated by the 
very men who have been train- 
ed in the traditional fashion. 
Another reason is that, for pur- 
poses of research, the Ri.D. 
requirements have been quite 
satisfactory. But the most im- 
portant reason is that special 
teaching degrees below the 
Ph.D. level have represented a 
lower level of status and pres- 
tige. The Doctor of Education, 
the principal degree for public 
school administrators, is an ex- 
ample of an effor t that has 
failed to gain the status en- 
joyed by the PluD. 

If a new degree is to take 
hold, the Carnegie publication 
suggests, "it must be a parallel 
rather than an intermediate de- 
gree-a doctorate equal in rigor 
to the Ph.D. but with greater 
breadth, requiring heavy em- 
phasis on the subject to be 
taught, and with some kind of 
supervised teaching exper- 
ience." 

Even this kind of proposal is 
slow to gain support. The doc- 
tor of arts has long b een talk- 



ed about, but it has made little 
headway until recently. 

Now, however there are 
signs of change. The National 
Science Foundation, the Nat- 
ional Academy of Arts and Sc- 
iences, the American Associa- 
tion of State Colleges and Uni- 
versities, and most important, 
the Council of Graduate Schools 
have come out in favor of this 
move toward a new degree. 

Last June, Carnegie-Mellon 
University in Pittsburgh grant- 
ed the first four doctor of arts 
degrees. And that high prestige 
institution now has 89 candi- 
dates for the D.A. which is 
being offered in the departments 
of English, history, mathe- 
matics, music and the visual 
arts. They are strictly under 
the control of the university, 
not the School of Education. 

The D.A. program, though 
teaching-oriented, does not dis- 
pense with the dissertation. Its 
emphasis, however, is not on the 
development of new knowledge, 
but on advancing the teaching 
of the discipline. The pre- 
scribed work includes a teach- 
ing internship, and an under- 
standing of the philosophers of 
learning.

Tippo Refuses to Answer 
Federal Inquiry on Speakers 

By ROBERT NORTHSHIELD 
Contributing Editor 

UMass received and sent back unanswered an inquiry from the U.S. House Internal Security Committee 
rSfcal stSd^fcSiSfiesI""^'^ investigation of the possible relaUonship between campus speakers Sd 



In the letters, sent out a month 
ago to 179 schools throughout the 
country, the committee, formerly 
called the House Un-American Ac- 
tivities Committee, requested that 
the schools supply names of all 
non-academic speakers who ad- 
dressed students on campus be- 
tween September 1968 and May 
1970. The letter also requested 
about how much the speakers were 
paid, the method of payment, the 
source of payment and the group 
sponsoring the speaker. 

Chancellor Oswald Tippo stated 
that UMass sent back a reply 
that told the committee that U- 
Mass had no speakers of the ''vio- 
lent, radical" nature described in 
the letter. In effect, the univer- 
sity thought the request to be 



questionable in nature. 

When the letter was first sent, 
a member of the committee, Rep- 
resentative Louis Stokes (D-Ohio) 
advised universities and colleges 
officials to ignore committee ques- 
tionnaires. He stated on July 14, 
that "the very existence of such 
speaker lists represents a chilling 
effect on the exercise of the First 
Amendment". Stokes added that 
he thought the committee request 
was an infl-ingement on academic 
freedom. 

However, chairman of the com- 
mittee, Representative Richard H, 
Ichord (D-Mo.), stated that Stokes 
claim about infringement upon ac- 
ademic freedom was "unfounded" 
and termed the survey "volun- 
tary". 



iK^ committee spokesman added 
that the investigation was very 
preliminary and said he did not 
know what would be done with 
the information. "If returns in- 
dicate there is a substantial evi- 
dence that speakers are financing 
a radical student activity," the 
spokesman said, "a congressional 
investigation could result." 

Other Massachusetts schools 
who were sent questionnaires in 
addition to UMass were, Harvard, 
Tufts and Williams College. None 
of these schools have responded 
one way or another. The Uni- 
versity of Rhode Island has agreed 
to submit the desired list of spea- 
kers. 



R.S.O. Budgets Frozen 
By Trustee Fin - Com 

By STAFF REPORTER 

rule on the question, but it is be- 
lieved that the Board will ask State 
Attorney General Robert H. Quinn 
to rule on the matter. Students 
say that if Quinn is asked to par- 
ticipate in the investigation, it 
will be several months before his 
office is able to issue an opinion. 



The Committee took this action 
after it approved in principle the 
Student Senate's proposed budget 
for the coming year. Chancellor 
Oswald Tippo had asked the Com- 
mittee to approve the Senate's 
funding of the Community Action 
Fund and the Senate Social Action 
Fund, two groups which he called 
"off campus social action groups." 

But while the committee appro- 
ved the funding of these groups, it 
questioned whether the University 
can legally force all undergradua- 
tes to pay the student imposed and 
levyed S.A.T.F. tax. 

The Trustees cited a case two 
years ago when then President John 
W. Lederle commissioned a study 
of University finances which ex- 
pressed some dout)t over the le- 
gality of the University collecting 
the student tax. 

The Finance Committee has 
hired an independent law firm to 



Project "Saved" 



And the students point out that 
since the Finance Committee has 
frozen all R.S.O. budgets until 
the ruling is announced, it is 
possible that no student groups 
will be able to operate for sev- 
eral months into first semester. 

In other action at the Commit- 
tee's meeting at the Parker House

Project Housing Question 
Solved By Bromery 



The crisis which threatened the 
continuance of Project 10 early 
last week, was averted by a UMass 
administrative decision on last 
Thursday, Both a Project 10 group 
and an Orchard Hill group de- 
sired to have both a co-ed dormi- 
tory situation similar to that which 
Greenough has presently, and to 
be able to admit freshmen to it 
this coming semester. 

The previous and still standing 
Trustee position was not to per- 
mit Freshmen into a residence 
hall which has adopted the Green- 
ough plan. Thus, both groups were 
turned down, but because of the 
particular L- shaped structure of 
the Orchard Hill and Southwest 
dormitories an alternative solu- 
tion was worked out. 

Pierpont and Webster was sub- 
divided into two separate physical 
entities each, where men and wo- 
men would have autonomous faci- 
lities. The division was a natur- 
al one architecturally speaking, and 
it is not anticipated that it will need 
Trustee approval. 

Assistant to the Chancellor for 
Student Affairs, Dr. Randolph Bro- 
mery, stated m reference to the 
on-campus housing situation that 
•students could not be treated as 
20,000 people who want the same 
thing." He also felt it important 
to maintain a campaign of credi- 
bility with the Board in order to 
prove University problems could 
best be tiandled within the Uni- 
versity. 



The Project 10 program has 
received over 130 applications thus 
far, and over 50 of these includ- 
ed parental permission to live in 
Co-ed situation. 

Project 10 which began in the 
academic year 1968-1969 was ori- 
ginally envisioned by Southwest 
Master John Hunt as a new edu- 
cational experiment in the Uni- 
versity which would ideally achieve 
a total integration of living and 
learning experiences. The experi- 
ment was to be conducted under 
the assumption that education is a 
total phenomenon which would in- 
volve a community of scholars 
working for common goals. 

Students in the Project are al- 
lowed to some extent to decide 
for themselves the kinds of ma- 
terials which they would like to 
study and the methods they would 
like to use. One initial aim of the 
Project was to make the experi- 
ence of living in a large residen- 
tial college more meaningful and 
to somehow make it relevant to 
the formal educational experience. 
Students in addition to living to- 
gether to a large extent go to class 
together in the same physical sur- 
roundings. 



Project participants have been 
at the forefront of academic re- 
form in the University in both the 
Free University and Contempor- 
ary University programs.

TUESDAY, JULY 28. 1970 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Situated at the top off Columbia Point, the lagoon in question was to have served as 
a recreation area for Columbia Point housing project residents. However, the Univer- 
sity's dumping of land fill into the area has put these plans in doubt. The proposed 
University campus would be located in the foreground of the photo. 

UMass Halts Lagoon Dumping 
In Boston Building Snafu 



UMass - Boston temporarily 
halted dumping land fill into a 
lagoon at the Columbia Point site 
for its new campus after about 40 
area residents protested the 
school's actions last week. 



The school planned to meet with 
a group from the Columbia Point 
housing project this week to dis- 
cuss alternatives for developing 
the 22 acres of land which make up 
the lagoon. 

About 40 Columbia Point resi- 
dents last week formed a human 
chain to halt trucks which were 
filling the lagoon with refuse from 
the old dump site at Columbia Point 
on which the University is build- 
ing its new urban camuus. 



The residents claimed last week 
that they had been working with city 
officials on ideas for developing 
the lagoon site for recreational 
purposes, but that UMass was 
tdocking those plans by using the 
lagoon as a dump site. 



"We want to have a say as to 
what is done with the land," ex- 
plained resident spokesman Louis 
Rodriguez, who added that his 
group wanted more of a voice in 
the plans of the University project 
being constructed "on their door- 
step." 

The University had claimed that 
the lagoon site was not fit for 
recreational use, and that con- 



struction of the school's new cam- 
pus depends upon using the lagoon 
as a dump. "There simply is no 
other place to put the land fill," 
explained UMass - Boston vice- 
chancellor Roy Hamilton. 



He suggested that the University 
and the area residents could work 
jointly to formulate ideas for re- 
creation areas on top of the land 
fill in the lagoon area. 



A bill which would legalize this 
agreement between the school and 
the residents of the housing com- 
plex was defeated in the legisla- 
ture last year, and a similar bill 
still awaits Beacon Hill approval 
this year.

Inflation Alert 



WASHINGTON — The Nixon Administration will announce the first 
In a series of "inflation alerts" next month. No one knows exactly what 
an "inflation alert" is, though it seems to be a way of alerting the 
American people as to what products are going up in price so the pub- 
lic will be able to boycott them. 

The details of the "inflation alert" have not been worked out so it's 
everyone's guess as to how it will be implemented. 

Perhaps Uke this: 

Let us suppose a rumor is out that the price of ground beef will rise 
4 cents a pound. This is picked up at the top-secret headquarters of 
the Inflation Alert Command located in the mountains of West Virginia. 
lAC sends out asquadronof Comparison Shoppers who make a fast swing 
throu^ supermarkets in Madison, Wis.; Boise, Idaho; Tucson, Ariz.; and 
Flatbush, Brooklyn. They must report back to lAC within two hours. 
(It is estimated that inflation can now hit this country in four hours.) 

If lAC's suspicions are confirmed they immediately notify Washington 
on the inflation hot line (it's called ttiat because the telephone company 
has just asked for a raise in rates). 

Washington notifies the White House and a meeting of the National 
Security Council on Ground Beef is hurriedly called. 

The meeting is presided over by the President who demands to know if 
the price rise in ground beef is a serious attack on the nation or just 
a diversionary tactic to keep the country from knowing of the meat pack- 
ers' real plan which is to raise the price on porterhouse steak. 

George Shultz, the President's Chief of Staff, says all his intelligence 
indicates that the ground-beef hike is the real thing, and he urges the 
President to call an inflation alert. 

The President then goes into a small room by himself with a yellow pad 
and pencil and lists all the options he has. 

His big problem is: Can he call an inflation alert without notifying 
Congress? He asks Atty. Gen. Mitchell who assures him that he legally 
can. Mitchell warns the President he can expect some static from 
the Senate, but if they are consulted they'll debate the alert to death, and 
before they're finished ground beef could be up by more ttian 10 cents a 
pound. 

The President makes his decision. He goes to his desk and takes out 
a key and unlocks a box. Then he presses a red button. 

All over the United States, inevery city and town, sirens start scream- 
ing. Inflation wardens grab their helmets and rush out into the streets, 
making everyone go into an inflation shelter or cellar. 

Cars and all transportation must cometoahalt. In 45 minutes, every 
consumer must be off the streets. 

By this time, the meat packers start dronung their inflation bombs on 
the country. 

But everyone is in his shelter and there is no one left topside to buy 
ground beef. The first day, the supermarkets drop it a penny a pound. 
Still no buyers. The next day, 2 cents a pound. Still nothing. On the 
fourth day with still no business, the supermarkets put large signs in 
their windows announcing a sale on ground beef ( the same price it was 
before the raise ). 

When this hai^ns. President Nixon presses the all-clear button and 
everyone comes up from bis shelter. It takes a lot of preparation but 
another battle against inflation has been won.

firaiideis Sets Political Limits 

Brandeis University, in Waltham, has spelled out the kind 
of student political activity that is prohibited on the university's 
campus. 

The new directives prohibit any member of the Brandeis com- 
munity from involving the name of the university in any political 
campaign and prohibits the use of the university's official seal 
in any political correspondence. 

The guidelines are an attempt to deal with the many legal ques- 
tions raised by the increasing amount of political activity on cam- 
pus. They also folbw on the heels of a controversy with the Wal- 
tham Board of Assessors over the tax status of a Brandeis build- 
ing which formerly housed the National Student Strike Informa- 
tion Center, a clearing house for information on campus pro- 
tests throughout the country. 

Under the new ruling, faculty, staff members and students using 
the name of the university for personal identification must state 

The guidelines also state that fees will be charged whenever 
facilities are used for political activites which transcend the 
usual "meetings" or "forums."

Froines Blasts U.S. 
In Lecture At UMas! 

By ALBERT BENSON 
Asst. Managing Editor 

John Froines, a member of the Chicago 7, advocated violence as 
a revolutionary tactic in a speech given in the Student Union Ballroom 
on Thursday, July 23. 

In his speech Froines maintained that a system which sustains 
itself by repressive police state tactics, must be overthrown by vio- 
lent means. "The people who run the United States," he stated, "use 
brutality and violence to keep their power." "Blacks live in vir- 
tually occupied ghettos, students live in the fear of constant police 
repression, and communities throughout Latin America, Africa, and 
Asia, are continually being exploited by U. S. Imperialism,'* he 
alleged. 

To build a revolutionary force to combat the "U. S. monster," 
Froines is trying to construct a coalition of workers, students, and 
minority groups. He maintained that Militant black workers have al- 
ready t)egun organizing in Detroit and other cities. He also added 
that Black, Mexican, Indian, and Puerto Rican and groups have form- 
ed radical units across the country. On the subject of student acti- 
vism, Froines was less optimistic. 

"Students in this country do not present a unified whole." They range 
from apathetic to radical. Many students will give only half-hearted 
support to liberal or radical causes, he stated. As an example, he 
cited the failure of Yale students to sustain an interest in activities 
surrounding the Panther trials in New Haven. "The Students lagging 
interest is another example of "liberal failure," " he argued. 

During his speech he also took litjeral Senators and Congress- 
man to task. Many, he felt, would support liberal causes only until 
it came time to stand up and give support to these causes. He used 
the trial in Chicago as an example. He charged that while Justice Hoff- 
man made a mockery of the law, lil)eral Congressmen tooked on in 
silence. "Where were the Hatfields, Kennedy's and Muskie's then?" 
he asked. 

Another target for Froines was the New Mobe. "The New Mobe is 
powerless." To be effective politically, we must destroy it, he added. 

Prior to his talk, a film on the Black Panthers and on Yippies was 
shown. After the meeting a discussion was held in the Colonial Lounge.

Tax Snafu 



An already confusing situation concerning the student 
tax controversy became even more confusing when a Board 
of Trustee sub-committee approved the budget "in prin- 
ciple" which means virtually nothing and approved a legal 
study of the student tax that conceivably could make the 
student tax voluntary and destroy the student organization 
structure as it now stands. 

This issue which has been both confusing and irritating, 
didn't need another confusing factor. But we really should 
expect that the Board of Trustees wouldn't clear anything 
up. However, right now it is a fatal tactic to pit the stud- 
ents against the board. 

We urge, instead, all students who believe that the stud- 
ent tax should be passed as the duly-elected body of the 
students passed, who believe that the student tax should 
be paid for all students, and who desire to have student 
organization that would be representative of a student body 
of 18,000 to write that conviction to Board of Trustee mem- 
bers before their August 10 meeting. 

Maybe a flood of letters in support of the tax is the only 
way left to have student organizations operating in the fall. 



Hamburger 
Snafu 



Remember the halcyon days of summer '67 when the im- 
possible dream of the Red Sox came true and another impos- 
sible dream of new campus center being built within two 
years began? 

Now, three years later, the Red Sox languish in the rub- 
ble of broken pitching arms and the Campus Center finally 
opens. Well, not completely opens, but at least opens its 
coffee shop. 

After three years of disputes over space, construction 
strikes, broken promises and runny blue prints, the Campus 
Center for which the class of 1970 paid for fouf- years and 
never used and that students will be paying for for many 
years to come, opens a coffee shop that features .600 ham 
burgers (called campus burgers) .70v cheeseburgers (called 
center burgers) and all paper utensils in a room that fea- 
tures some of the most expensive wood paneling that can 
be found. 

Now, this wasn't unexpected after the barrage of infla- 
tion arguments that have explodet' over the airways. Every- 
one knows that prices have gone up. And granted, the 
hamburgers served in the CC are of far better quality than 
the burgers in the old Hatch. (This, according to our ham- 
burger expert. Wimpy P. Prostack.) The trouble is why is it 
necessary for the higher prices in a supposed student din- 
ing area? 

This is obviously a trivial argument to have on a hot 
summer day what with the problems of the world descend- 
ing upon us all. But it strikes us as a needless waste of 
expense for students to have .600 campusburgers when 
they can still have a .350 Hatchburger that, while not per- 
haps as big, is not .250 worse, and has the added touch 
of the Hatch jukebox, with the nine year old Johnny Cash 
album. 

We implore the Campus Center luminaries to reassess 
their coffee shop prices and remember the old adage "i 
campus burger in the hand is worth too much in the pocket".

WASHINGTON - 
the first solution 



This is a government of reports and studies. No matter what happens in this nation, 
is to appoint a commission to study it. The commissions take one year, two years, 
some even Imiger, and then they make their report to the President. If the President agrees with the 
report, it's released to the nation. If he or his staff disagrees with it, it's Iwried. But where? 

Just by chance I discovered the 
secret txirial grounds of reports 
and studies noade by presidential 
commissions. The cemetery is 
located on a hill overlooking the 
upper Potomac. It is quiet and 
deserted, and only the chirpbg 
of birds or the call of a hoot owl 
can be heard.

Mr. Gottfried Snellenbach has 
been caretaker of the burial area 
for government reports since the 
Harding Administration, and after 
I assured him I would not dig up 
any of the graves, he let me enter 
the large well-kept grounds. 



"We*ve got some of the great 
reports of all times buried here," 
Mr. Snellenbach said. "We've got 
reports that cost $20 million and 
we*ve got reports that cost $2,000 
but in the end they all wina up 
here, buried six-feet under." 



"Sir, what kind of reports are

"It might be better to ask what 
kind of reports aren't buried here. 
We have reports on violence, stu- 
dies on blacks, students, unemploy- 
ment, the economy, the Communist 
threat, housing, health care, law 
and order. You name it, and we've 
buried it." 



"Well as you know, the Presi-

supposed to hand in a report. Now, 
lots of times the President has no 
intention of paying any attention to 
the report, and it's dead before it's 
even written. Other times someone 
on the President's staff reads a 
report handed in tjy a commiss- 
i(Mi and says 'This .tuff is dyna- 
mite. We have to kill it.' 



"In some cases the President 
says 'Let's release this report to 
the press and then bury it.' Oc- 
casionally a report will just die of 
heartbreak because nobody pays 
any attention to it. 



"In any case, after the report 
is dead, it has to be buried, be- 
cause if you're President you don't 
want someone finding it at a later 
date and using it against you. 



"So every week each report 
that has died is placed in a pine 
box and loaded on a government 
hearse and brought up here, where 
we have a simple ceremony before 
lowering it into the ground. 



"If it's a blue ribbon panel 
report that's been killed in action, 
we give it a 21-gun salute. Other- 
wise, we lay it to rest with as lit- 
tle fUss as possible." 



"This cemetery goes for miles 
and miles," I said. 

"No one knows how many reports 
have been buried here by the differ- 
ent Presidents." 



"Mr. Snellenbach, this is a beau- 
tiful cemetery and very impres- 
sive. But why does the govern- 
ment go to so much trouble and ex- 
pense to keep it up for nothing 
more than paper reports?'* 



"You must understand that most 
of the me n asked to serve on 
presidential commissions are very 
important citizens. They spend 
months and years working on these 
reports, and they feel very close 
to them. When their reports are 
killed or buried, these men feel 
a personal loss. Many days you 
will see them sitting here next 
to the tombstones of their stud- 
ies, tears rolling down their che- 
eks. No maHer hi-^w long you 
work here, it still gets to you.

Zombie Plague 



Catch 22. The trouble with the Power People is they rule in 1945 
consciousness and Houndstooth suits. And so they try to force those 
they control to dream about Life, crippling our abilitie s to live it. 
The university is based on the assumption that anything can exist. 
The universe is not. So the Power People shove their greyness, their 
requirements, their values, their life-style, their profit motivations 
down our throats. Yossarian screams, "You're crazy!" But Dean 
Venman sells education as an "alternative to vagrancy," orientation 
shows "Plague of the Zombies," while Tippo goes "uncommitted" 
and asks to see it in writing. 

The Proposal. The Proposal. Keep them sitting making compromises 
and writing proposals. Keep them sitting and immobilized. Sitting, 
l)eing rational and intellectual. Sitting keeping the emotions and meta- 
bolism down. Sitting; in meetings, in lectures, in classrooms, in se- 
curity. Look what sitting does to animals in the zoo. The cages are 
different, the process is the same. Statism supports Power. Power 
is the result of the helplessness of the people in established institut- 
ions. 

"1 Am The Chancellor." Scene; Oswald Tippo sitting alone i n a 
brightly lit Board Room at the head of a long brown table on the third 
floor of fortress Whitmore. He is reading Jeramy Benthram's "Hand- 
book of Political Fallacies." Benthram's method has been learned 
well by the Johnson's, the Reagans, the Daleys, the . . . On suppress- 
ing issues: (1) Repress it with authority. (2) Claim it has no rele- 
vance. (3) Becloud the issue. Above all appear noncommitted. Stop 
Community. Delay coeducation, hinder social action. Split and divide 
campus summer groups. 1945 forever! 

Another book over ten years ago, Paul Goodman's "Growing Up 
Absurd" dealt with juvenile delinquency and Beakniks as reactions 
against our national institutions - impersonality, absurdity, values 
of. The Power People reviewed it. Now Goodman talks about deschool- 
ing society. 

The President's Commission on Student Unrest points to Berkeley 
and Columbia structures as dead centers of learning and go on to warn 
some large universities may not open in the fall. Meanwhile in Am- 
herst, Contemporary University, the program created by one of the 
Commission's members (Joe Rhodes) is held as a political pawn caught 
between the School of Ed. and the Provost's office. 

But Eric the Rat is convicted for dancing naked during the Strike 
because it was obscene and immoral. Remembering the Rat last 
summer talking about Reutger's Strike. How we could plan then to 
deal with overcrowding and rent prices? Started thinking FUC domes. 
Remembering Dean Field imposing curfews on Freshmen Orientation 
last summer with no rationale but in the name of the Trustees. Doing 
the same again last month, saying he hadn't expected the question to 
arise. Remembering Swingshifters getting screwed repeatedly last 
summer and no one could find anybody in charge of the program. 
Remembering Field freezing the Senate funds to Free University 
City last September when nobody thought it could be done. It still 
haw)ens because we do things the same way. 

Aye, the process, there's the rub. A Strike Committee beauracracy 
is stiU a beauracracy. We scream freedom, liberation, power to the 
people, only to faU back on the techniques and methods of the oM 
culture. The culture of the Power People: the Pentagon and HEW, 
the draft boards, corporations, syndicates, universities. IVe don't 
want to get hung-up on goals, but fail to see the systems we're in 

making them for us. / ^ * *». 

Catch 22. Screaming I want to be human and love/share at the 
Power People who say "seU out" and create interns, vice-Chancel- 
lors, program directors, deU-managers and dope dealers. Power 
People as first grade teachers who warn pay attention, fold your 
hands, 2 and 2 are 4 because I say so, don't talk about sex and you'U 
get a star on your forehead for beating tt»e other guy. 

Tippo drives a big shiny state car, legitimate power or not, riding 
over creativity and spontaneity. How many are still being arrested in 
Santa Barbara and shot in Houston while we do our thing in Amherst? 
We polish the car and think we're initiating change in the system that 

runs it. 
Bow Tie or Strike fist we're sUU using the same deodorant.

Dear Sir: 

In view of the widespread In- 
terest on toe campus in toe so- 
called Princeton plan, perhaps you 
would be willing to publish toe 
following statement which Is based 
on my remarks at toe July 9, 
1970 meeting of toe Board of Tru- 
stees Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy. 

The Princeton Plan involves toe 
rearrangement of toe academic 
calendar to provide a two-week 
re cess immediately prior to toe 
November elections. This recess 
is being set up so toat mem- 
bers of toe Princeton University 
community may contribute toeir 
time and efforts to toe local and 
congressional campaigns in which 
toey are interested. The Plan in- 
volves no shortening of toe aca- 
demic term. To make up for toe 
special two-week recess in No- 
vember, toe new Princeton cal- 
endar provides for opening toe 
academic year one week earlier 
than previously scheduled (Sept- 
ember 14 instead of September 
21), eliminating toe Thanksgiving 
Recess (November 25 to 29), and 
delaying toe start of toe Christ- 
mas holiday for toree days (from 
December 16 to 19). The Prince- 
ton rearrangement of toe fall cal- 
endar is fully consistent wito toe 
Guidelines set forto by the Ameri- 
can Council on Education and ap- 
proved by toe Commissioner of 
Internal Revenue. 

The University of Massachu- 
setts/ Amherst plan for an autum- 
nal recess would envision the sus- 
pension of classes for no more 
toan eight academic days ending 
November 3, 1970. To make up 
for tois time, four reading per- 
iod days are cancelleii, examina- 
tion periods are shortened by two 
days and four half Saturdays are 
used up. 

The proponents of this plan cite 
toe following advantages among 
otoers: 

1. It win encourage students to 
engage In legitimate political ac- 
tivity torou^ established channels 
ratoer toan by unconventional or 
illegal means. 

2. By giving toem tols oppor- 
tunity to work within toe system, 
we may be able to halt toe gro- 
wto of disaffection and a tendency 
toward violent revolt. In otoer 
words, ai^roval of toe plan would 
be a gesture of good falto on toe 
part of toe adult society toward 
toe student generation. 

3. By encouraging students to 
return to toelr home districts and 
work for toe candidates of toeir 
choice, ratoer toan demonstrating 
on campus, toe University wouW 
be preserved as a place for aca- 
demic activities ratoer toan po- 
litical action. It is understood 
toat if tois plan is approved, toe 
Campus will be in recess status; 
as it is during vacations, and 
University resources will not be 
depbyed Into political activities. 

4. The arrangement isclearcut; 
many students wlU undoubtedly en- 
gage in a certain amount of po- 
litical activity during tois period 
anyway, and students and faculty 
alike will be faced wito all toe 
problems of reduced and uncertain 
class attendance, missed examin- 
ations, etc. This is what happened 
during toe recent strike and it 
was most unsatisfactory. 

5. The proposed recess comes 
close to toe middle of toe semes- 
ter, probably toe most desirable 
time from toe academic point of 

view. 

6. Direct participation and con- 
ventional political activity can en- 
rich the students' collegiate edu- 
cation. 

Those who question toe desir- 
ability of this plan raise a num- 
ber of objections as follows: 

U The American Council on 
Education Guidelines require toat 
time for toe autumnal political 
recess be made up from non- 
currlcular time. This we are not 



doing since we are deleting four 
reading period days, two examin- 
ation days, and four half Satur- 
days. 

2. We will be subject to toe 
criticism toat toe faculty is being 
given one more week of vacation 
and yet toey wiU receive toe same 
pay. We may expect suggestions 
toat faculty not be paid during this 
period. 

3. Our non-academic employ- 
ees may demand toat toey be giv- 
en time off wito pay so toat toey, 
too, may engage la political ac- 
tivity before the election. 

4. We cannot be certain how 
many students will take advan- 
tage of the purpose of tois re- 
cess. We have had no student 
poll and the plan came up too 
late in toe Spring for Student 
Senate action. The executive com- 
mittee of toe Student Senate with 
only fourteen students present did 
endorse toe plan. Thus, it may 
be toat we are changing toe sch- 
edule of many persons to accom- 
modate toe desires of only a few 
(jt is estimated that only a toous- 
and of our students took advan- 
tage' of toe April 10-11 freedom 
from classes). 

5. The question will certainly 
be asked why is tois special pri- 
vilege being granted to toe faculty 
and students when this privilege 
is not enjoyed by otoer citizens. 
Other persons have to fit in toeir 
political activity around toeir work 
or actually take time off from toeir 
employment. Critics will be ready 
to point out toat academics have 
argued in toe past against discri- 
minatory legislation such as spe- 
cial loyalty oatos for faculty and 
otoer repressive legislation. If 
discrimination is wrong in toe 
one case, is it not also wrong In 
tois case? 

6. Of very great concern is toe 
question whetoer students wiU all 
wish to leave toe campus, or will 
toey stay here and use toe campus 
as a political base, employing 
University facilities. Prudence 
dictates toat if toe so-called Pr- 
inceton Plan is adopted on toe Am- 
herst campus, we shall be forced 
to close down toe University com- 
pletely during toe autumnal re- 
cess. This may beextremely dif- 
ficult since many of our gradu- 
ate students, faculty, and some 
undergraduates, will want to con- 
tinue toelr scholarly work. 

7. Under toe Faculty Senate 
proposal, we may run Into some 
fiscal difficulties. Senator Byrd, 
to debate over toe U.S. Office of 
Education Appropriation Bill, po- 
toted out toat toe House ^prop- 
riation Committee has instructed 
HEW to reduce funds when any 
college falls to provide instruc- 
tion for a comparable numl)er of 
days as it did in toe preceding 
year. 

8. There are dangers wito re- 
spect to toe legal situation. Uni- 
versities are corporations and 
corporations are forbidden by fed- 
eral law to be involved in elect- 
ion of political candidate s and 
In carrying on actlvltle s to In- 
fluence legislation. The Internal 
Revenue code carries much toe 
same language for tax-exempt sta- 
tus. It could be argued, of course, 
toat perhaps toat as a state in- 
stitution, our tax-exempt status 
is not in question. However, toe 
query could be raised, should no» 
state universities abide by toe 
same regulations toat private in- 
stitutions must follow. In any 
case, toere is one area in which 
we would have difficulty - name- 
ly, in the area of alumni contri- 
butions and otoer gifts. We could 
endanger our tax-exempt status 

here. 

9. There Is no doubt that if 
we were to have tois autumnal 
recess, toere would be much 
criticism from parents, students, 
toe general public and toe Legis- 
lature of toe fact toat we were 
closing toe school for political 



purposes. 

10. The objection has also 
been raised to toe disruption of 
a calendar which is pretty well 
established and which now would 
involve significant changes for 
many individuals who have planned 
toeir fall field trips, research 
activities, etc. 

11. It is significant toat only 
one state university, as far as we 
know, has adopted toe so-called 
autumnal recess - namely Rut- 
gers University. Actually, very 
few private institutions have ap- 
proved the plan. A recent report 
from toe Association of Ameri- 
can Universities, which includes 
toe leading 46 universities of toe 
country, states toat only 3 univer- 
sities (Princeton, Brown and Cor- 
nell) have made definite plans for 
toe recess, while 26 report toat 
such a recess is improbable or 
impossible. Among toe institut- 
ions which have voted to disap- 
prove toe plan are Amherst, Wil- 
liams, Harvard, etc. The Harvard 
faculty voted toat political activity 
should be a matter of individual 
not institutional choice. It also 
reaffirmed its belief toat toe cen- 
tral functions of toe university 
are learning, teaching, research, 
and scholarship. Its faculty feels 
toat these functions should take 
priority over politics. The fac- 
ulty motion which carried went 
on toe say: "But it believes 
toese withdrawals must be indiv- 
idual, not institutional choices. 
For it does not toink such de- 
cisions should be imposed on toose 
who do not wish to make them; 
and it believes toat if tois Faculty 
or the University as a whole, ac- 
commodates its work or reshapes 
its goal to political purposes, how- 
ever wortoy. Its functions will be 
jeopardized, its quality erroded, 
and its existence ultimately brou- 
ght into question." 

12. It may beargued toat at an 
institution like Prtoceton where 
many of toe students come from 
distant potots of toe United States, 
toere may be some justification 
for a recess to allow travel time. 
But is tols necessary at toe Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts/ Amherst 
where some 95 per cent of toe 
undergraduates come from toe 
state of Massachusetts and,toere- 
fore, are able to travel to toeir 
home bases on weekends and at 
otoer free times. 

13. Then toere is toe practical 
argument whetoer this particular 
period, just prior to toe Novem- 
ber election. Is toe most effect- 
ive time for students to work in 
toe poUtlcal campaign. ShouU 
not tols effort be exerted much 
earlier, for example, before toe 
primaries? 

14. Ftoally, toere are toose who 
plead toat since we have had dis- 
ruptions in toe academic program 
during toe Spring strike and toe 
April 10 and 11 activities, per- 
haps we should at least plan on 
one good solid academic semes- 
ter during toe next academic year. 

In view of all of toese difficul- 
ties and problems, U has been 
suggested toat we might foUow a 
compromise plan - toe plan to be 
used at Harvard. Sttidents could 
individually elect to be involved 
to political work during toe week 
preceding toe faU election. Dur- 
ing tois period we would hope to 
be able to persuade our profes- 
sors not to require examinations 
or papers, and toat any work miss- 
ed could be made up later. Fur- 
toermore, it is suggested toat each 
professor announce his intentions 
for tois period at toe first meet- 
tog of toe class In toe fall, to 
this way, we will be able to ac- 
commodate toose students who 
wish to participate in political 
activities and yet protect toe rights 
of the vast number of students who, 
it is predicted, will wish to continue 
toe normal academic program.

"Undoubtedly, the franchise is the single factor which has created 
the greatest change in the hotel and restaurant business in the 1960's," 
writes Prof. Donald E. Lundberg in his newly pubUshed book, "The 
Hotel and Restaurant Business." Prof. Lundberg is chairman of the 
department of hotel and restaurant administration at the University. 

In addition to the franchising phenomenon, the book covers the his- 
tory of the hotel-restaurant industry, the vacation market, restaurant 
and kitchen operation, and the men who shaped the industry. Of Cesar 
Ritz, Lundberg writes, "he was an innovator, an artist in human 
relations, who placed the handling of people as being the most im- 
portant of all qualities for the hotelier." Because it is a book about 
a people business, it contains many entertaining sidelights about 
operations and operators. 

Prof. Lundberg received his Ph.D. degree from Cornell University, 
and was appointed to the UMass faculty in 1963. He is the author of 
some 200 articles and is author or co-author of seven books. 

Another new book by Dr. Lundberg is a British edition of "Under- 
standing Cooking*' which he wrote with Lendal H. Kotschevar and Vic- 
tor Ceserani. It has recently been published by Edward Arnold Pub- 
lishers, Ltd., in Great Britain. 

"The Hotel and Restaurant Business" was published by Institu- 
tions Magazine of Chicago.

The University plans to provide graduate training for 64 water 
pollution control engineers over the next five years under a grant 
from the Federal Water Quality Administration. 
, The training is a project of the environmental engineering pro- 
gram of the department of civil engineering and will be supported 
over the five-year period by some $294,000 in federal funds, accord- 
ing to Dr. T. H. Feng, coordinator of the environmental engineering 
program. 

The program will provide training at the master's degree level 
in all pahses of water pollution control. Ten students will be ad- 
mitted the first year, 12 each for the next two years and 15 in each 
of the last two years. The grant is a renewal of a similar five-year 
UMass project that began in 1965 under Dr. Feng.

Coming Ttfiirsday 

Casablanca Called Film Classic 

By MARTIN K. PURVIS 
Special to the Statesman 

The coming of the film CASABLANCA to UMass this week brings to mind a sense of anticipation 
beyond the usual one of reseeing a fUm classic. It is that of looking straight into the face of an Ameri- 
can myth. It is perhaps the contemporary nature of this particular myth that makes this film - a 
"Hollywood" melodrama - one of the real enigmas of American pop culture. 

Even today there is consider- 



able lack of unanimity from critics 
as to the film's ultimate impor- 
tance. It's overall popularity with 
its audiences is underiable, how- 
ever. Made in 1942 and starring 
Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Berg- 
man, and Claude Rains, CASA. 
BLANC A has been one of the most 
popular and widely seen films 
ever made -achieving almost cult- 
like proportions with college stu- 
dents. Besides making Ingrid 
Bergman an American star and 
winning three Academy Awards, 
including best picture, the film 
provided the ultimate vehicle for 
the Bogart legend. Indeed one 
measure of the film's success is 
that some of its lines, like "Here's 
looking at you. kid" and "Play it, 
Sam" are still part of the Amer- 
ican scene. 

The behaviour of the critics 
then is interesting. Although most 
of them admit liking the film, 
they seldom pin-point the reason. 
(E.g. Richard Shickel caUs it "de- 
licious".) For one thing CASA- 
BLANCA stubbornly resists ana- 
lysis on the basis of film aes- 
thetics' meager categories, in par- 
ticular, the "auteur theory." The 
auteur theory asserts, to put it 
loosely, that a work of cinematic 
art is achieved as a result of a 
personal statement by the film's 
creator - the director. CASA- 
BLANCA'S director, Hungarian- 
born Michael Curtiz, was more 



famous for his mauling of the 
English language than for his acts 
of creativity ("This scene will 
make your blood curl"). Curtiz, 
once a circus strong man. dir- 
ected three films in 1942 and 
usually turned out gross block 
busters rather than personal sta- 
tements. Critics, perhaps thinking 
of Curtiz's career, occasionaUy 
term CASABLANCA a slick spec- 
tacular, but modern audiences 
can't help but regard the staging 
as a bit shoddy by today's stand- 
ards. Curtiz did, however, have 
an excellent sense of camera rhy- 
thm and lighting, both essential 
ingredients to the film's success. 

However the nature of the film's 
greatness is more closely identif- 
ied with the portrayal of Humphrey 
Bogart as Rick, the classic movie 
example of the alienated anti-hero 
redeemed by love. Romanticism in 
the American film frequently takes 
its form in the cynical tough guy's 
iDdepeodence. Sentimentality lies 
traditionally in the finish when the 
anti-hero turns hero. CASA- 
BLANCA is no exception. Rather 
it is a near perfect representa- 
tion of this genre. 

Since sentimentality exists more 
in the imagination than in the real 
world, an expressionistic, sub- 
jective environment is crucial to 
the theme. Hence CASABLANCA

ing would £iil to achieve the emo- 
tional power. Furthermore Bo- 
gart's acting style is perfectly 
geared to the role. His restraint 
and cool always suggest an inner 
turmoil that internalizes the ac- 
tion for the audience. 

The viewer always understands 
that Rick knows the score and 
that his mind is always churning, 
despite the forcedly calm exter- 
ior. (Imagine the film with Rick 
played by Ronald Reagan, the man 
Bogart beat out for the role.) 

All of these e]q)ressionistic ef- 
fects (some ofwhich may have been 
partly indigenous to fUms of the 
forties) combine for an emotional 
impact which is still as powerful 
today as it was three decades ago 
and which, except for notable ex- 
ceptions like, BONNIE AND CLY- 
DE, is no longer observable in the 
modern American film. The out- 
rageously melodramatic plot not- 
withstanding, CASABLANCA is a 
brilliant example of how stirring 
good movies can be. 



Life Styles Exchange 
Goal of UMass Program 
For Japanese Students 



Forty-one Japanese students are enrolled in a four-week Japanese 
Summer Institute at UMass. 

"Our intention is not only to acquaint Japanese students with Ame- 
ican society, but also, and equally important, to expose UMass students 
to an Asian people," said Walter Silva, the Institute director. The 41 
students are living with American students on the Amherst campus, 
where they are studying American society and the English language. 

The Institute is offering four one -week seminars in contemporary 
American civilization: Contemporary American Poetry, taught by Jane 
L. Tokarz of the English department; Politics of the 70's and Student 
Activism, taught by Milton Cantor, associate professor of history; 
Black Man in White America, taught by McKinley Moore of the School 
of Education; and the Ecological Crisis, taught by Jerry C. Jenkins 
of the botany department. 



English language studies are being integrated into the seminars 
under the direction of an instructor qualified as a teacher of English 
as a foreign language. 

The four -week program include s field trips throughout Massachu- 
setts, including places of literary importance in the Concord- Lexing- 
ton area, an urban ghetto seminar in the Roxbury section of Boston, 
Tanglewood, the Mohawk Trail, and a Boston Red Sox game. 

Informal discussions with student groups, community leaders, edu- 
cational leaders, and home stays with local familie s are additional 
features of the program. 



The Institute has twen held by the University Southwest Residential 
College annually since 1965. It is sponsored in cooperation with the 
Council on International Educational Exchange. 

Families in the Amherst area who would like to entertain any of the 
Japanese visitors may make arrangements through Walter Silva at the 
University, 545-1551. The Institute will be in session until Aug. 4. 

After their departure from Amherst, the group will spend four weeks 
traveling across the United States staying with American fanrdlies under 
the direction of the Experiment for International Living.

Erving Chosen 
For U.S. Team 



UMass sophomore basketball 
star, Julius Erving, who rewrote 
the Redman record books in his 
first varsity season, was chosen 
last weekend to be a member of 
the 12- man United States all star 
team in tryouts held at the Air 
Force Academy in Colorado. 

Erving, who led UMass to their 
greatest hoop season in history 
and a post season birth in the Na- 
tional Invitational Tourney, was 
one of a dozen players chosen 
from over 40 that were origin- 
ally selected to tryout. 

The 12- man squad will make a 
three week tour of Finland, Po- 
land, and Russia, beginning in 
about 10 days. In addition this 
all-star team will probably re- 
present the United States in the 
Pan-American Games next year 
and in the 1972 Olympics. 

Erving a 6*5 forward from 
Roosevelt, N.Y. and Co-Captain, 
of the 1970-71 UMass team will 
be joined at the forward spot by 
the most touted high school se- 
nior of the past year, 6' 11 Tom 
McMillen, and by 6'6 Diennis Wuy- 
cik, 6'7 Chuck Terry, 6'7 Joby 
Wright, and 6'7 Bob Nash. The 
centers will be 6'10 Cyril Baptiste 
and 6' 10 Steve Erickson. 

The guards are led by Dart- 
mouth star Jim Brown, and also 
include Paul Westphal of Southern 
Cal, Lew Nelson and Art Wil- 
more. 

The news didn't surprise UMass 
Coach Jack Leaman too much. 
"The Olympic type of basketball," 
said Leaman, "is a quickness 
and agility game and those are 
two areas where Julius is great. 
He deserves any honor he gets." 
The coach added that he talked to 
Erving shortly after the selec- 




tions were announced and des- 
cribed his star as being "really 
overjoyed at the opportunity." 

Leaman bad additional good news 
for UMass hoop fans saying that 
he had overall good luck in re- 
cruiting getting four of his top 
prospects. UMass will be de- 
fending a New England title this 
season.

The New Haven Panther Trial. An Involved Case 



NEW HAVEN - A year ago this 
Summer. FBI agents in cities 
across the country embarked on 
an extraordinary series of raids 
in search of an obscure figure 
named George Sams Jr., a mus- 
cular young man who had fled the 
scene of an alleged Black Pan- 
ther kidnap- murder here. 

Panther headquarters were 
smashed open in Chicago by agents 
wearing bullet-proof vests. An 
apartment was raided in south- 
east Washington, D.C. Finally, 
Sams, then 23, was tracked down 
and arrested in Toronto, and one 
possible reason for the extended 
search became clear: 

Black Panther Party National 
Chairman Bobby G. Seale, Sams 
informed police in a statement, 
had ordered the killing in New 
Haven of Alex Rackley, a sus- 
pected Panther informer. 

Seale has been imprisoned for 
nearly a year on the liasis of Sam's 
statement and subsequent testi- 
mony at a hearing where bail was 
denied him. When Seale is brought 
to trial, possildy months from now, 
Sams is expected to be the key - if 
not the only - eyewitness against 
him. 



It is an unusually prominent 
spot for Sams, who never has oc- 
cupied a place in the Panthers' 
hierarchy. He has a history of 
mental disorder, was reportedly 
once expelled from the party, and 
has been accused l)y former as- 
sociates of brutality and "sadis- 
tic" behavior. 

According to court records, 
Sams was born in Alal)ama in 
1946 and al)andoned at birth. He 
was raised by foster parents, spent 
most of his school years in Missi- 
ssippi and then moved to New York. 

He t)ecame a regular truant from 
school, where he was doing poorly, 
and wound up in a state school. 
He was certified a "mental de- 
fective" with an IQ of 64, be- 
came a behavior problem, and was 
transferred to another correc- 
tional institution in 1963. 

He was classified by psychiatric 
evaluation as being in a "border- 
line inteUigence group with an IQ 
of 75" at the new institution. He 
was released, after showing im- 
provement, in 1964. 

During Seale's l)ail hearing, the 
court ordered a new psychiatric 
examination^ which turned up a 
strikingly different picture of the 



By WILLIAM CHAPMAN 
(From the Washington Post) 



man. 

"His general attitude was one of 
warmth and cooperation and there 
was no evidence of guardedness, 
evasion or hositility" said the 
court- aRX)inted psychiatrist. Dr. 
Robert B. Miller, superintendent 
of Connecticut's Fairfield Hills 
Hospital. 

"It was my clinical impression 
both from the questions put to him 
and from the general interview 
that his IQ had increased beyond 
the 75 level and should be cate- 
gorized as within the dull normal 
range," Dr. Miller reported. 

Sam's record as a Black Panther 
is obscure. Several sources have 
said he came into the party as a 
protege of Stokeley Carmichael, 
whom he had served as body- 
guard, and then stayed on after 
Carmichael dropped out. They 
claim he was once expelled after 
a fight but finally reinstated. 

He showed up in New York City 
and New Haven in the spring of 
1969 with instructions, he has 
said, to help "straighten out" the 
East Coast chapters. He told po- 
lice he had been sent from San- 
Francisco with another Panther 
Landon Williams. 



Twenty-one New York City Pan- 
thers had been arrested in a bomb 
plot, and he said a search was 
under way for informers. One 
suspect, he told police, was Alex 
Rackley, the man scalded with 
boiling water in a New Haven apart- 
ment and later killed. 

The first trial for that kidnap- 
murder has been under way for 
two weeks in New Haven and has 
disclosed some of the evidence 
against Seale and seven other de- 
fendants. Sams, meanwhile, is 
awaiting sentencing for second- 
degree murder, to which he plead- 
ed guilty after agreeing to testify 
for the prosecution. 

The prosecution case against 
the first defendant, Lonnie McLu- 
cas, includes witnesses' state- 
ments and his own admissions to 
police placing him in the base- 
ment of the apartment where Rack- 
ley was tortured. 

Testimony by another Panther, 
Warren Kimbro, plus other state- 
ments, have McLucas firing the 
second shot into Rackley's body, 
found in a swamp 25 miles from 
here. 

The testimony to date also point- 
ed to an overpowering role played 



by Sams. It was Sams who or- 
dered Rackley taken to the base- 
ment and bound, who ordered the 
Ixjiling water brought, who gave 
many other commands to a 
loosely-organized group of Pan- 
thers on or near the scene, ac- 
cording to testimony. 

No one has suggested that Seale 
was on the scene for any part of 
the torturing. At this point, the 
case rests entirely on Sams* ac- 
cusations. 

Sanre last summer gave a state- 
ment to New Haven police, includ- 
ing the following exchange: 

Q - Did anyone ask Chairman 
Seale what was to be done with 
Rackley? 

A- Landon was asking what we 
thought about the pig and he asked 
Chairman Bot)by Seale v/hat did he 
think, and Chairman Bobby said 
what we do with pigs, a pig is a 
pig, he said do away with him and 
left.... 

Q - What did you take this to 
mean? 

A - To KUl him. 

The prosecution's problem with 
Sams' statement is that it appar- 
ently cannot be corrobrated by any 
other witness to the alleged scene.

Administration 
Seen Housing 

The administration's six part plan to cope with the 
impending fall housing crisis has met with some 
early success, although Housing office personnel 
are relectant to say at this time how much their 
program will go towards alleviating the problem. 

The primary feature of the plan, an effort to get 
Freshmen to voluntarily agree to live in triples, 
has been the most productive one thus far, ac- 
cording to administration sources. 

Over 350 Freshmen agreed to live in triples 
during orientation, and they have been guaranteed 
a thirty percent reduction in room rent. 

It is not known at this time whether more 
Juniors and Seniors will seek off-campus housing 
than in previous years. Also, the results of an 
administration request which was sent to students 
whose homes are within com muting distance of cam- 
pus, asking them to commute for at least the first 
semester, is not known at the present. 



Plan 
Boon 



However, about thirty students have agreed to 
live in vacant Fraternity and Sorority space. Also, 
the Campus Center is expected to be used as 
t)edspace during the first week of the semester 
while permanent accomodations are found for those 
staying there. 

The main cause for the housing problems which 
UMass wil 1 probably encounter this fall was a 
two month long construction strike during April 
and May of this year which eliminated any hope 
of the "1970 dormitories" opening this faU. It 
now appears that only one of these residence halls 
will be open at the beginning of the Spring sem- 
ester. About 1500 more students will be attending 
the University during the coming academic year 
and this additional squeeze on existing facilities 
will probably create some "forced tripling", ac- 
cording to the Housing office. 





Southwest, (photo at right) has traditionally been the 
heaviest location of triples on campus. The crowded 
rooms (photo above) numbered over 1000 last year. 



Anne Sexton 
Featured Tonite 

The Pulitzer-prize winning poet Anne Sexton will 
be featured in an unusual poetry and chamber 
rock evening at UMass Thursday. 

Appearing under the auspices of the University's 
Summer Arts Program, Anne Sexton and Her Kind 
will perform at 8 p.m. on the Mall of the South- 
west Residence Area or in case of inclement 
weather, in Bowker Auditorium. The program is 
open to the public without charge. 

Anne Sexton was born in Newton and grew up 
In Wellesley. In 1960 Mrs. Sexton's first book, 
"To Bedlam and Part Way Back" was publish- 
ed and was soon followed by a second, "All My 
Pretty Ones." Both were acclaimed by the cri- 
tics and established Anne Sexton as an outstand- 
ing American poet. 

Her poems have appeared in such magazines 
as the New Yorker, Harper's, Yale Review, Satur- 
day Review and Hudson Review. She held the 
Rolwrt Frost Fellowship at Breadloaf and was a 
scholar with Radcliffe's New Institute for Inde- 
pendent Study from 1961 to 1963. 

Mrs. Sexton has received numerous honors for 
her works including a fellowship of the American 
Academy of Arts and Letters, Ford Foundation 
Grant and in 1965 was elected a Fellow of the Ro- 
yal Society of Literature. In 1966 Mrs. Sexton 
won the Pulitzer Prize for "Live or Die," a 
volume published by Houghton Mifflin Company. 

Joining Anne Sexton for an evening of her poet- 
ry and chamber rock will be Bill Davies, elect- 
ric piano and organ; Ted Casher, flute and sax; 
Steve Rizzo, guitar; Mark Levinson, bass and 
Harvey Simons, drums.

IRS: A Hollow Threat? 



(Editor's note - The following editorial appeared in the Boston Sunday GLOBE last 
week. It provides a clear view of a question which has led several Universities to re- 
examine the nature of their involvement in the non-academic community over the last 
several weeks.) 



Treasury Secretary David Kennedy has 
made a good try at rationalizing Admin- 
istration **suggestions** that universities 
and colleges may lose their tax exempt 
status if they permit their students and 
faculties to engage in political activit- 
ies, especially against the war. But it 
doesn't quite come off. The "suggestion** 
amounts to suppression, and there is no 
excuse for this in a democracy however 
it may be rationalized. 

Supression is a dangerous substitute for 
free expression, as is so well spelled 
out in the Heard Report, which Presi- 
dent Nixon has put on the public record. 
Mr. Kennedy has said the Administra- 
tion, through the Internal Revenue Service 
and Justice Department, is acting select- 
ively to ward off the broad assault which 
such Rightist congressional hardliners as 
Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C), would be 
sure to make if the Administration did 
not act first. This may be. But a lit- 
tle bit of suppression, like a little bit 
of pregnancy, is a forerunner of what to 
expect when it has reached full term, and 
none of the auguries in this instance is 
good. In a nation whose base is his- 
torically and necessarily political, the 
Administration would clamp down on po- 
litical activity which it finds embarras- 
sing. And it would do so, moreover, by 
adding to the financial difficulties which 
already threaten the existence of many of 
the nation's universities and colleges, in- 
cluding some of the oldest and best. 
The chief objects of the threat are the 
students' National Coa^non for a Respon- 
sible Congress (Should they be urging an 
irresponsible one?) and all similar groups 
that could be regarded as unorthodox. 
Ihe Republican Congressional Campaign 
ovfimittee, for exHRple, has cited the 
off- campus, out-of- school -hours political 
activity of Princeton University students, 
and quotes a ''high" IRS official as say- 
ing "if I were counsel for a school I 
would recommend arainst this kind of ac- 
tivity." The Young Democrats and Young 
Republicans appear to be personae grat- 
ae, as they should be, and presumably 
for the reason Uiat they constitute no 
unmalleable threat to established political 
wheelborses accustomed todefencUngeach 
other against interlopers. But as to oth- 
ers, the IRS so-called guidelines are so 
vague, presumably deliberately so. as to 
put the fear of Big Brother into the hearts 
of all university administrations which up 
to now had accepted the demonstrable f^t 
that it is within, not outside, the polit- 
ical system that their restless students oe- 
long. 

It is understandable that universities 
would want neither their names nor prop- 
erty used for partisan purposes. But stu- 
dent and faculty si^jport of candidates of 
whatever party who answer their descrip- 
tion of good men for the job in a most 
trying time, including peace candidates, 
can hardly be called a partisan activity, 
at least in the traditional sense. More- 
over, the student- faculty groups, so far 
as is known, ftilly expect to pay, as at 
Princeton, for example, whatever rentals 
are asked for the facilities they use - 



even though in the proper sense of the term, 
their activities could be and should be 
construed as a part oftheeducattonal pro- 
cess for which the students enrolled in the 
first place. Their political activities, how- 
ever objectionalde they may be to those 
whom they oppose, have to be viewed at 
least as a welcome advance from their 
fathers' student days. That was when con- 
cern with what was happenihg in the world 
was measured by the pah^ raid , the 
football rally and the gigantic bonfire fed 
with pilfered university tables and chairs 
for the traditional burning (in most mid- 
west universities, anyway) of freshman 
beanies. 

Let it be granted that all students are 
objectionable to some of their elders and 
some are objectionable to all of them. 
But who among their elders is not object- 
ionable to some of them? And if the 
legitimate political concerns of students 
are a valid reason for imposing punitive 
taxes on the universities they attend, then 
what, by extension, becomes of the tax- 
exempt status of contributions to, say, 
churches or veterans groups whose mem- 
bers meet in their halls? Internal Re- 
venue and Justice may be contemplating a 
bigger bite than they can chew. 

The thinly vieled IRS threats (augmen- 
ted now by local tax assessors) comes at 
a time which ought to be acutely embar- 
rassing to an administration which is 
at all sensitive to the little niceties. It 
follows by just a day or so the tax ex- 
emption which IRS has granted to private 
schools in six Southern cities on their 
"assurance" that they are nondiscrimin- 
atory, it being just a happenstance, pre- 
sumably, that no blacks have applied for 
admission. It comes, also, after dis- 
closure that government agencies, includ- 
ing US Army intelligence officers mas- 
querading as students, are compiling dos- 
siers on students and their political be- 
liefs. 

"Many of the young people," as Har- 
vard president Nathan Pusey testified be- 
fore the presidential commission investi- 
gating campus unrest, "have a different 
view of the world and our society thah 
most adults have." 

Of course they have. But this is no 
reason either to shut them up or make 
it all but impossible for them to be heard 
on the hustings. What an individual says, 
does and stands for should be weired 
on its merits, not the individual's age, 
for the old can be either as wise or as 
vapid as the young and as entitled both 
to be heard and to participate. John D. 
Rockefeller 3d, chairman of the Rocke- 
feller Foundation, has said it all and said 
it aUy: 

"There is a unique opportunity before 
us to bring together our age, experience, 
money and organization with the energy, 
idealism, and social consciousness of the 
young ... We badly need their ability 
and fervor." 

it would be tragic if the blunderines 
of the Justice Department and IRS both 
responsiUe, after all, to President Nixon, 
were to blow it.

Free Gifts 



WASHINGTON - The nation's savings banks have gone into the 
free gift business in a big way. In order to attract depositors, 
the banks are giving away everything from color TV sets to lawn 
mowers, and the competition to give away gifts is getting fierce. 
I went into a bank the other day to break a 20-dollar bill, 
and as I arrived at the window, the cashier handed me a press- 
ure cooker. 

"No," I said, "I don't want a pressure cooker, I just want 
to. . ." 

She leaned down and came up with a box, "How about a steam 
iron with 21 steam vents?" 
"Thank you very much, but I would like to . . ." 
"All right. We'll give you a clock radio that lights up in the 
dark." 

"Miss, I don't want to be ungrateful, but all I need is change 
for a 20-dollar bill." 

The cashier pressed a button and suddenly two bank guards 
were standing on each side of me. "Come this way please 
and don't make a fuss." 

They escorted me to the desk of a vice president and stood 
on each side of me, their hands on their revolvers. 

"Doesn't want the pressure cooker, the steam iron or the 
clock radio," one of the guards said. 

"A real troublemaker," the other guard added. 
The vice president said, "I'm sure we can work something 
out." 
"Good," I said, handing him the 20-dollar bill. 
"Put your money away," he said angrily. Then he took out a 
catalogue. "Would you settle for a three-piece bedroom set?" 
I shook my head. 

"All right, we'll put in a new kitchen for you, but you'll have 
to keep the $20 in for a full year." 
"I don't want to deposit the $20. I just want change for it." 
The vice president looked at me quizzically. 
"Keep an eye on him," he said to the guards. Thenhedis- 
appei red into an inner office. He returned 15 minutes later 
with another man who introduced himself as a senior vice pre- 
sident. "I see Collins here has been offering you a lot of 
juok. It's obvious you're a man of taste and elegance." 
"Thank you," I said. I held up the 20-dollar WU. 
"Come this way," the senior vice president said, taking my 
20-dollar bill. 

He ushered me into his office which was covered with paint- 
ings. "Now we can either give you this original El Greco, or 
the Van Gogh, providing you don't withdraw the $20 in the bank 
for two years." 
"They're very nice, twt I need the money." 
"You are difficult, aren't you? Would you consider a quarter 
Interest in the Pan Am Building? For that you would have to 
leave the $20 In for five years." 

I was getting angry. "Look," I said, "I do not wish to open 
an account In your bank. If you don't want to change my 20- 
dollar bin, ru go across the street." 

"All right, If you're going to be tough, we'll get tough," he 
said. "We'll give you a private plane, a Rolls Royce, and Bebe 
Rebozo's home In Key Blscayne, Florida. That's our final offer." 
I took the $20 back In disgust and went across the street to 
the other bank. But I was blocked at the door by four FBI 
agents. 
"What's going on?" I asked. 

"There's been a holdup," one of the FBI men said. "The 
robbers got away with three pbonographs, a garbage disposal 
unit and an electric blanket." 



Budget Still Chilly 

Quinn Holds SATF Key 

The Student Activities Budget remained up in the air this week, as the Board of Trustees Finance 
Committee Monday approved in principle all of the groups funded by the Student Senate approved 
budget, but questioned the legality of the University collecting the student tax. 

which 



Chancellor Oswald Tippo had 
asked the Committee to rule on 
whetbt.r several so called "off- 
campus social action groups" 
should be funded by the Student 
Activities Tax (SATF). Tlppo cited 
several letter from parents who 
objected to having student monies 
fund these groups, and the Chan- 
cellor wanted a ruling on whether 
UMass might jeapordize Its tax 
exempt status If these groups were 
funded. 

But the Trustees approved all 



eral R.S.O. groups which were 
not questioned by Tlppo volun- 
teered to freeze their own accounts 
until the matter was resolved. 

Specifically affected by the 
Chancellor's ban was the Com- 
munity Action Foundation, an "um- 
brella organization" for several 
educational and social programs 
In the Amherst-Sprlngfleld area. 
This organization had $28,000 In 
student funds earmarked. 

One of the larger components 
In this group is Street Academies

lecting the tax, and indicated that ganizatlon. 
they will ask State Attorney Gen- 



eral Robert H. Qulnn for an opin- 
ion on this question. 

The matter was put off until the 
August 10th meeting of the full 
Board in Amherst, but several stu- 
dents reasoned that the Attorney 
General's Investigation will take 
several months to complete, and 
that all student activities would 
remain in Umbo until the conclu- 
sion of Quinn's Investigation. 

Tippo 's freeze on the "off- cam- 
pus social action groups" will 
continue until the end of the At- 
torney General's investigation. 
And a Student Senate freeze of 
most of the $500,000 budget will 
also continue in protest of Tippo 's 
partial freeze. 

The Attorney general, in addi- 
tion to ruling on whether UMass 
can collect the student leveyed 
fee, will also rule on the proprie- 
ty of funding the groups which 
Tippo had originally questioned. 
But if the Attorney General's 
investigation were to recommend 
that the University not collect the 
tax, then all student groups, in- 
cluding both the activities which 
Tippo questioned and those which 
he did not, would be unable to 
operate. 

The entire controversy began 
two weeks ago when Tippo froze 
approximately 10% of the $500,000 
budget, the money allocated for the 
social action groups. In response 
to the Chancellor's actions, sev- 



" We're not radical" he explain- 
ed. "We're not even political. 
All we're trying to do is be of 
some service to these kids." 

Defending the Senate's appro- 
priation to Community Action 
Foundation, UMass Senior George 
Chllds said, "CAF addressed It- 
self to the social problems of 
poor education, mchiutrition and 
racism." And his defence of the 
program was echoed by Dean of 
Students William F. Field who 
added, "The Student Senate has 
inaugurated measures which the 
University itself could not or- 
ganize." 

Another major component of 
CAF is the Northeastern Educa- 
tional Tutoring Service, which op- 
erates a tutoring program for un- 
derprivileged children in Western 
Massachusetts.

Glenn Elters urged quick action

And Elters warned that if the 
Trustees delay long enough to 
jeapordize any of the groups fund- 
ed by the Senate from operating 
at the start of the Semester, the 
Senate would take the case to 
court. 

Elters said that he doubts that 
the Attorney General can find the 
student tax to be illegal. 

"It is a fee of the University, 
just like all other fees,*' he ex- 
plained. "If they find this fee 
unacceptable, they must find other 
fees, such as the Athletic fee, to 
be illegal as well.

"Project Broadjump," a feder- 
ally sponsored program working 
in conjunction with the School of 
Education, is currently involved 
with 115, 6th, 7th and 8th graders 
from New York City. 

In an effort to improve the stu- 
dent's academic and social abi- 
lities, the "project" is offering 
workshops in art, creative writ- 
ing, black culture, science, me- 
dia, photography, and human re- 
lations. 

In addition to these activities, 
classes in advanced and reme- 
dial math and reading are be- 
ing held. 



Another aspect of he program 
which is designed to aid the stu- 
dent in his adjustment is the choice 
of the project's staff. Most of the 
teachers are from schools that 
the students have attended or will 
attend. The others are people 
trained to aid students from dis- 
advantaged backgrounds. The 
counselors are undergraduate and 
graduate students from colleges 
atong the East Coast. 

The students themselves come 
from the Lower East Side of Man- 
hattan and from East Harlem. 
They are currently being housed 
in Crabtree House in the Quod.

A Program to UpgradeSchoolsFor The 'Deprived' 



By FRED HECHINGER 
(From the N. Y. Times) 

The debate over the education of Negro and Puerto Rican children 
in the urtmi slums has l)ecome a stalemated chicken-egg argument: 
Which must come first - improvement of the children's inferior school- 
ing or improvement of their debilitating environment? 

Last week Kenneth B. Clark the noted Negro psychologist and edu- 
cator, declared the argument nitile. He announced that his organiza- 
tion, the Metropolitan Applied Research Center, would try to prove 
the futility by showing in Washington, D.C., that black children can 
succeed in an urban public school system. 



Dr. Clark's reasoning is as sim 
pie as it is basically conservative. 
Bad as urban conditions are, those 
who control public education have 
no power to wipe out the slums. 
"The only power over which they 
have effective control is educa- 
tion itself," Dr. Clark said. Let 
the educators, therefore, use all 
means - not just the unsuccess- 
ful routine means - at their dis- 
posal to make education the spear- 
head. 

The Metropolitan Applied Re- 
search Center, of New York, de- 
vised a program for Washington 
at the invitation of the capital's 
Board of Education. Funds for 
the project, which may turn out 
to be the most crucial gamble on 
controversial, concerted educa- 
tional strategies, were provided 
mainly by universities and found- 
ations. 

In accepting the challenge, Dr. 
Clark not only thought of the visi- 
bility of anything that succeeds in 
the nation's capital; he also se- 
lected the city which illustrates 
clearly the tragic condition of ur- 
ban America. 

Washington's schools, 90 per 
cent black, have long been de- 
serted by the middle class, black 
or white. If the tide can be turn- 
ed there, the theory goes, it can 
be turned everywhere. This 
makes the Washington "design," 
to be applied in the coming school 
year to all the city's elementary 
and junior high school students 
the most significant test of pub- 
lic education in America today. 
What are to be the key ele- 
ments of the program? There is 
to be no easy victory by gim- 
micks, no political or ideolo- 
gical claims, no relaxed stand- 
ards for "the deprived." 
(1) Curriculum. For one en- 



tire "reading mobilization year," 
the whole curriculum is to be gear- 
ed to competence in reading and 
reading comprehension. All ac- 
tivities, including dramatics, cho- 
rus, special clubs, and even ath- 
letics, are to stress the basic com- 
ponent of reading and precise writ- 
ing and speech. 

Reading teams in each school, 
composed of classroom teachers, 
reading specialists, administra- 
tors and consultants from uni- 
versities, will put an end to the 
current dead-end practice of re- 
lying on remedial efforts to step 
in after retardation has already 
taken its toll. There is not to be 
any reliacne on any one method, 
although the phonetic approach, 
which teaches individual letters 
and sounds rather than the re- 
cognition of whole words, is clear- 
ly favored. 

The program rules out the theory 
that ghetto children should be al- 
lowed to perpetuate their street 
dialect and grammar. The school's 
first obligation is "to see that the 
English language is taught effec- 
tively, and respected and learn- 
ed by all children." 

(2) Teachers. Dr. Clark be- 
lieves that the old "sentimenta- 
list appeals" for dedication, self- 
sacrifice and social sensitivity 
must be replaced by greater com- 
petence and professional dignity. 
Teachers are to be considered qua- 
lified, not by virtue of a degree, 
but only after supervised on the 
job training, similar to medical 
internship and residency. 

Under this plan, the following 
categories of teachers would be 
introduced: staff teachers, who 
would study and teach at the same 
time; senior teachers, who are 
comparable to associate profes- 
sors, and paid on an equal level 



with assistant principals; master 
teachers, the equivalent of full 
professors, at a principal's sal- 
ary, whose rank signifies proven 
ability to stimulate pupils; dis- 
tinguished teachers, a rank re- 
served for a few classroom tea- 
chers who have contributed to the 
improvement of education beyond 
the local schools. 

This is more than a new salary 
scale; it links rank to proven ca- 
pacity and classroom perfor- 
mance. It makes the reward for 
such performance equal to that for 
administrators, and thus would in- 
cidentally give equal career op- 
portunities to women in a field 
where supervisory posts are still 
largely a male monopoly. 

(3) Administration. The super- 
intendent will appoint a small task 
force of knowledgeable persons 
from within the system, members 
of the community, and from tea- 
cher-training institutions to iden- 
tify effective administrators. A 
special group of experts is to deal 
with the service functions and re- 
cord-keeping while the academic 
leadership devotes its energies to 
education. 

The Washington plan is essenti- 
ally conservative in a non-politi- 
cal sense. It rejects the idea 
that minority children be iudeed 
by less rigid yardsticks, not be- 
cause it wants to keep them down 
but rather because it is convinc- 
ed that full sharing in the benefits 
of American society can only be 
brou^t about by equal accom- 
plishment. Dr. Clark believes that 
poor teaching and low expectations 
and not any inherent inferiority, 
are the stumbing blocks. 

But the Washington plan is con- 
servative, too, in that it sees com- 
petition as a vital ingredient. It 
wants the group to Ijecome a fac- 
tor in pushing its members toward 
success. This, too, is why it 
rejects grouping of children into 
fast and slow tracks. 
The plan is perhaps most con- 



servative in that it rejects ttie po- 
litization of the schools - its use 
either by community or teacher 
groups to advance positions of 
ideological power. 

It may be indicative of the mood 
of what could be the coming aca- 
demic year's most visible attack 
on the urban school crisis that as 
the Washington "design" was made 
public, the Washington school 
board decided not to consider 
Rhody McCoy, the former admin- 
istrator of the Ocean Hill-Browns- 
ville demonstration district in 
Brooklyn, for the superintendency. 
He was apparently too political and 
therefore seemed too divisive. 

How fast and how completely 
the program can be implemented, 
particularly in staffing, remains 
questionable. But the decisions 
made so far imply a search for 
basic education solutions-solu- 



tions which neither the black-po- 
wer ideologues nor the traditional, 
middle-class-oriented oolljur- 
eaucracies have been i^jie to offer. 
The Clark appeal is radical only 
in the sense that it asks for an 
end to black and white racism 
and the beginning of a profes- 
sional code that accepts only the 
successful end product as proof 
of competence. 

While it may be naively Utopian 
to intepret this as a promise to 
do equally well by all children, 
the test of this daring national 
demonstration is whether it can 
do relatively as well by black and 
white children. If Dr. Clark can 
do this, his plan could silence the 
present alibis of educational bur- 
eaucrats as well as the rhetoric 
of the New Lett sentimentalists 
and black-power demagogues. 



Draft Service 
Needs Counselor 

The new campus draft counseling service is looking for people who 
are interested in learning to counsel students about the draft. A train- 
ing program will begin Tuesday, August 11, at 1:00 p.m. There will be 
a toUl of four sessions, each about three hours long. 

The training sessions will be led by Harry Miles, a specialist in Se- 
lective Service law and a former draft counselor and trainer for the 
Fellowship of Reconciliation in New York. 

There will be a five dollar fee to cover the cost of materials, but 
scholarships can be arranged. Preference will be given to those who 
will be on campus in the fall and will be able to do some volunteer 
counseling. The training sessions will, of course, be open to both 
male and female students, according to organizers. 

Those interested in learning draft counseling should leave their 
names at the Draft Counseling Service table which is set up every 
afternoon in front of the Hatch in the Student Union.

Project Focus 



New England Organizations Unite To F^ht Pollution 



By ALBERT BENSON 
Asst. Mang. Editor 

From Boston to Buenos Aires and from Sidney to San Franacisco, 
blankets of smog are causing itchy throats, watery eyes, and smoke 
filled lungs as the world faces one of the most widespread pollution 
crises in Its history. In an effort to combat this proMem concerned 
groups of people are creating organizations which will work towards 
alleviating the pollution producing situations. 

Here in Amherst a group called 



"Project Focus" is currently con 
vening to deal with and to discuss 
some of these situations. 

The stated goal of the group is 
to inform and educate as many 
people as possible to the dangers 
of pollution. "We hope", com- 
mented Robid Hubley, one of the 
project's organizers, "to reach 
people who normally would not 
have access to the information. 
Because students and other peo- 
ple in the academic community 
are constantly exposed to this type 
of informatijDn", he continued, "we 
are aiming bur drive at families." 

To provide the most accurate 
sources of information "Frcus" 
is bringing together many diverse 
conservation organizations. In - 
eluded among these are: the Si- 
erra Club, the Save New England 
Association, and the National Au- 
dubon Society. 

The Sierra Club, a nationally 
known conservation group, has 
been in the forefront of many 
pollution struggles. At the pre- 
sent time, it is involved in the 
controversy over the SST. The 
SST, or supersonic transport 
plane, is a commercial passenger 
plane that would fly faster than 
the speed of sound. 

It is currently being built by 
the Boeing Company with assist- 
ance from the Federal Govern- 
ment. Once in operation the plane 
would create continuous sonic 



rces, the noise pollution caused 
by this plane will become a ser- 
ious threat to health in one year. 

In response towhat they consider 
the SST threat, the Sierra Club 
has mounted a campaign against 
Federal funding for this project. 
Armed with a large and influential 
membership, they are now lobbying 
for congressional support for their 
efforts to cut off Federal money. 
At the present time they are 
showing signs of success. 

Another group actively involved 
in the conservation struggle is the 
Save New England Association. 
While this organization is involved , 
with air, water, and land pollu- 
tion, its most important concern 
now is the possible atomic pollu- 
tion which can result from de- 
fective nuclear reactors. Through 
out the country, plans for atomic 
power plants are being drawn up. 
New England has been chosen as 
the site for four of these reactors. 
If the states permit it Vernon,. 
Vermont, Plymouth, Mass., Wis- 
cassett, Maine, and Waterford, 
Conn., will have reactors within 
two years. 

According to the Save New Eng- 
land Association the resulting dan- 
gers to these communities would 
far outweight the benefits. Ac- 
cording to Jean Moczulewsici, the 
Associations' secretary, "£ven 
small malfunctions in the reactors 
could spew deadly materials over 




booms along its entire fUght path large areas." "The result onhea- 
and twenty-five miles to either vily populated areos could be cat- 
side. According to informed sou- astrophic", she added. 



Environmental pollution, 
many conservation groups, 
past weekend. 

In response to this, the Associ- 
ation has been involved in a cam- 
paign to stop the construction of 
these reactors. Letters and pe- 
titions have been sent to t'la State 
House. Representatives of the 
organizations are in Washington. 
Miss Moczulewski felt that her 
organization had made some pro- 
gress. 

Similarly, the representatives of 



like this dump in Sunderland, has become the focus of 
including the Audubon Society which met in Amherst this 



Vermont State Pops Featured 
InSummerArtsProgromThursday 



The Vermont State Symphony 
Pops Orchestra under AlanCarter 
will be featured in concert at U- 
Mass Thursday, under the auspi- 
ces of the University's Summer 
Arts Porgram committee. 

The program will be held on 
the outdoor mall. Southwest Re- 
sidence Area, at 8 p.m. or in 
case of inclement weather, in Bow- 
ker Auditorium. The concert is 
open to the public without charge. 
UMass summer students with ID's 
will be given preferential seating 
in Bowker. 

The Vermont State Symphony 
Orchestra was founded by Dr. 
Carter in 1934, bringing together 
serious musicians from through- 
out the rural state of Vermont. 
In 1939, the Orchestra appeared 
at the New York World's Fair 
and soon after the Vermont Legis- 
lature designated it as the official 
state symphony orchestra, the first 
of its kind in the nation. The 
State of Vermont also appropriated 
a small grant for its orchestra 
at this time and has continued to 
support the ensemble, financially 



and in other ways. 

For its debut concert at the 
Amherst campus of UMass, Alan 
Carter has selected a program 
combining light classics with tra- 
ditional pop concert fare. The 
program opens with the Overture 
to "The Gypsy Baron" by Johann 
Strauss and continues with Bizet's 
Suite from "Carmen"; Fantasia 



on "Greensleeves" by Ralph Vaugh 
an Williams and the waltzes from 
"Der Rosenkavalier" by Richard 
Strauss. 

The last half of the concert is 
devoted entirely to show music by 
Richard Rodger s including orch- 
estral suited from "South Pacific" 
"Sound of Music" "MeandJuUet" 
and "The King and I." 



the National Audubon Society felt 
that their group had made pro- 
gress in its struggle for conser- 
vation. According to Stanley Qui - 
ckmire, an Audubon representa- 
tive, "we are fighting two major 
battles on a national level and 
appear to be winning". The first 
area of conflict is Machiasport, 
Maine. 

At the present time Machias- 
port, Maine is a quiet rural vill- 
age on the coast of Maine. The 
government is planning to turn 
the area into duty free port where 
ships from all over the world 
could dock. Since this would be 
the only port of its kind in the 
United States, a large amount of 
shipping would be conducted in the 
area. In addition to the large 
amount of shipping, the Atlantic - 
Ritchfield Oil Company has plans 
for setting up a refinery in the 
area. 

The supporters of these plans 
give two basic rationals for their 
plans. First they argue, the port 



would provide cheaper fuel oil 
for New England, an area in des- 
perate need of some ec«,nomic re- 
lief. Secondly, they maintain, the 
port would spur the Machiasport 
area's declining economy. 

Those opposed to the project 
argue that the "free port" will 
not lower fuel rates appreciable, 
will not spur healthy economic 
growth, but will destroy the eco- 
logical balance of one of the East 
Coast's last remaining sanctuarys. 
Construction at the Machiasport 
site is currently at a standstilL 

In another conservation con - 
flict the Audubon Society helped 
to bring a halt to the construct- 
ion of an airport on the l)oundaries 
of the Everglades National Park. 
The group argued that the con- 
struction of an airport on the site 
would alter the flow of rivers 
which ftow through the area, up- 
setting the natural balance. They 
further argued that the proposed 
construction would spur real es- 
tate development in the area. 



Pops for Children Slated 

Special open rehearsal for cnildren will be performed by the Ver- 
mont State Symphony Pops Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Alan 
Carter on the mall at the Southwest Residence area at the University 
Thursday afternoon at 2:30. 

In case of inclement weather, this one hour program will be held in 
Bowker Auditorium at the same time. Program narrator will be 
Walter Chesnut of the University's department of music. 

On this occasion, the orchestra will perform works which will be 
heard at its major concert at 8 p.m. Aug. 6. These will include the 
Overture to "The Gypsy Baron" by Johann Strauss; Suite from "Car- 



men' 



by Bizet; Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on "Greensleeves' 



waltzes from "Der Rosenkavalier" as well as music from the Richard 
Rodger? shows "South Pacific," "Sound of Music," "Me and Juliet" 
and "The King and I."

University To Collect Funds 
As Senate OK's Schools Bill 



The University will receive several 
thousand dollars in funds from the Federal Gov- 
ernment's education budget, passed by the Senate 
last week. But the final figures of appropriations 
in each of the 29 catagories will not be known for 
several weeks, according to Assistant to the Chan- 
cellor, David Clay. 



The budget sent to the President last week 
provides $454.3 million more than President 
Nixon's requested budget for the office of educa- 
tion for the current fiscal year. 

Among the most significant items in the final 

bill: 

Higher education programs will receive $967.8 
million as compared with $850.9 million in the 
previous year. 

Four year colleges lose $28 million approved 
by the Senate for construction of academic fa- 
cilities but public junior colleges and technical 
institutes will receive $43 million for such pur- 
poses. 

Deletes $500,000 each of funds voted for the 
Senate for five new programs - international 
education, law school clinical experience, Net- 
warks for Knowledge, public service education 
and graduate school improvement. 

Following is a breakdown of funds, compiled 
by the American Council of Education, of the 
Senate -House compromise budget compared with 
the amounts available in fiscal 1970:

EducatorsAssess Black Dropouts 



The Scholarship. Education and 
Defense Fund for Equality report- 
ed yesterday that only 23 of the 155 
black college students it aided in 
the last seven years have dropped 
out of school. 

This represents less than hall 
the normal rate of college drop- 
outs in all American colleges and 
universities. Talks with black 
educators, indicate that there are 
no reliable estimates or studies 
of the black college student drop- 
out rate. 

Adequate statistics, they added, 
are not available for the whole 
country and would tend to vary from 
region to region, from Wack col- 
leges to white institutions. They 
also said that in many cases black 
students spent five or more years 
qualifying for a four-year degree 
because of the need to earn money 
or remedial coursestomakeupfor 



poor college preparation at high 
school. 

Ronnie Moore, executive direct- 
or of the group, at 164 Madison 
Ave., said the majority of stu- 
dents sponsored by his fund could 
be considered "high risk" college 
material often lacking "in top ac- 
ademic credentials needed to win 
conventional scholarship awards." 
BAROMETER SUGGESTED 
Mr. Moore contended that "the 
low ctopout rate of scholars sel- 
.ected for SEDFRE grants suggests 
that the criterion of community 
commitment and leadership may 
indeed prove a practical barometer 
for spotting academic potential." 
The group, fLnanced by small 
private foundations, also special- 
izes in training newly elected black 
officials for their jobs. It pro- 
vides technical assistance to com- 
munity groups and black elected 



officials such as Mayor Charles 
Evers in Fayette, Miss. 

Most of the group's scholarship 
students come from large families 
with incomes far below $4,000. 
Many fkmilies receive welfare as- 
sistance. 

The scholarship program con- 
sists of semester grants ranging 
from $150 to $1,000. The grants 
are accompanied by counseling 
to bridge the transition from in- 
ferior high schools to competitive 
colleges 

Eighty- four of the 155 scholar- 
ship students earned bachelor's or 
graduate degrees by June, 1970. 
As of 1969, a total of 22 of those 
who received bachelor's degrees 
enrolled in graduate schools spe- 
cializing in law, social work, com- 
munity organization, sociology, 
city planning and related subjects. 



NEW YORK - Oct. 31, 1970. 
Yale and Dartmouth are to renew 
their 100 -year rivalry. 

Comes game time; no players - 
the athletes are out politicking. 
Mid -November. A huge stadium 
is fiUed for a game involving the 
No. 1 ranking. Tension is high. 
Suddenly hundreds pour out of the 
stands onto the field, chanting 
slogans, waving signs and forming 
a human carpet over the playing 
area. 
What happens? 

These are spectres haunting 
coaches and college athletic offi- 
cials as they gear for a new col- 
lege football season in an atmos- 
phere of growing campus unrest 
ajxl revolt. 

How will the campus revolution 
affect football? Can sports be 
divorced from the fer ment of social 
and political upheaval affecting 
the rest of the student Ufe? Is 
football a likely target of the 
miUtants? 

"All of us are frankly con - 
cerned," said Admiral Tom Ham- 
ilton, commissioner of the Paci- 
fic -8 Conference which includes 
such large universities as the 
University of California and Wash- 
ington, where domonstrationshave 
been heavy. 

"Nobody knows what will happen. 
We are just keeping our fingers

crossed and hoping sanity will 
prevaiL The problems vary with 
each institution and must be han- 
dled separately. There is little 
we can do as a group." 

Yet the problem has received 
cor par ate attention. 

It was a major topic of dis- 
cussion at a recent meeting of 
conference commissioners in 
Colorado Springs, Colo. Athletic 
directors, meeting in Houston, 
prol)ed the possibilities fully. 

Walt Byers, executive director 
of the National Collegiate Athletic 
Association mother hen for 717 
colleges, presented the commis- 
sioners with a game cancellation 
insurance plan. 

It was strictly exploratory - a 
voluntary plan for reimbursing 
those schools hurt by cancellation 
of games for any reason. Nothing 
was done alx}ut it. 

Reed said events in the spring, 
when there were reported to be 
about 600 scattered campus actions 
of varying description and degrees 
had sharpened the sense of alert- 
ness of athletic leaders. 

"We know it can happen," he 
said. "We don't like to make a 
big thing of it because we are 
aware of the power of suggestion. 
But we would be foolish not to be 
prepared for any eventuality." 

Campus disorders heated up last 
spring after President Nixon sent 
American troops into Cambodia. 
Some colleges shut down compl- 
etely. Spring sports programs 
jvere curtailed. Some athletes 
engaged in boycotts. 

Similar interruptions in football 
- the big money sport - could be 
painful. 

There were 22 sports cancella- 
tions at Yale alone. At Berkeley, 
Calif., about 150 California athletes 
held a mass meeting in the foot- 
ball stadium and voted to boycott 
the spring program. Skeleton 
crews rowed in the major Eastern 
regattas. 

"Some Ivy League schools are 
threatening to take ofi Uie week of 
Oct. 24-31 in order tiiat students 
may participate in the pre-election 
campaigns." said David Smoyer,

Art History Films To Be Featured A Guide 



By MARTIN PURVIS 

Special to the Summer Statesman 



Electing A Congress 



Thursday evening at Mahar Au- 
ditorium, The Art History Club 
will present the film THE ANDA- 
LUSIAN DOG (Un Chien Andalou) 
as a cofeature along with THE 
TREASURE OF SIERRA MADRE. 
The film was made in 1928 by two 
young Surrealists who had recent- 
ly arrived in Paris, Luis Bun- 
uel and Salvador Dali. The 
following are comments by Jean 
Vigo, the brilliant French film 
director who died in 1934 at the 
age of 29. 

UN CHIEN ANDALOU, though 
primarily a subjective drama fa- 
shioned into a poem is none the 
less, in my opinion, a film of 
social consciousness. 

UN CHIEN ANDALOU is a 
masterwork from every aspect: 
its certainty of direction, its br- 
illiance of lighting, its perfect 
amalgam of visual and ideologi- 
cal associations, its sustained dr- 
eamlike logic, its admirable con- 
frontation between the sub- 
conscious and the rational. 

Considered in terms of social 
consciousness, UN CHIEN AND- 
ALOU is both precise and cour- 
ageous. 

Incidentally I would like to make 
the point that it t)elongs to an 
extremely rare class of film. 

In order to understand the sig- 
nificance of the film's title it is 
essential to remefnt)er that M. 
Bunuel is Spanish. 

An Andalusian dog howls - who 
then is dead? 



Our cowardice, which leads us 
to accept so many of the horrors 
that we, as a species, commit, 
is dearly put to the test when 
we flinch from the screen image 
of a woman's eye sliced in half 
by a razor. Is it more dreadful 
than the spectacle of a cloud veil- 
ing a full moon? 

Such is the prologue: it leaves 
us with no alternative but to ad- 
mit that we will be committed, 
that in this film we will have to 
view with something more than the 
everyday eye. 

Throughout the film we are held 
in the same grip. 

From the first sequence we dis- 
cern, l)eneath the image of an ov- 
ergrown child riding up the street 
without touching the handlebars, 
hands on his ttUghs, covered with 
white frills like so many wings, 
we discern, I repeat, our truth 
which turns to cowardice in con- 
tact with the world which we ac- 
cept, (one gets the world one de- 
serves), this world of inflated 
prejudices, of twtrayals of one's 
inner self, of pathetically roman- 
ticized regrets. 

M. Bunuel is a fine marksman 
who disdains the stab in the t)ack. 

A kick in the pants to macabre 
ceremonies, to those last rites 
for a being no longer there, who 
has become no more than a dust- 
filled hollow down the centre of the 
bed. 

A kick in the pants to those 
who have sullied love by resorting 



to rape. 

A kick in the pants to sadism, 
of which buffoonery is its most 
disguised form. 

And let us pluck a little at the 
reins of morality with which we 
harness ourselves. 

Let's see a bit of what is at 
the end. 

A cork, here is a weighty ar- 
gument. 

A melon - the disinherited mid- 
dle classes. 

Two priests - alas for Christ! 

Two grand pianos, stuffed with 
corpses and excrement -our path- 
etic sentimentality! 

Finally, the donkey in close-up. 
We were expecting it. 

M. Bunuel is terrible. 

Shame on those who kill in you- 
th what they themselves would 
have l)ecome, who seek in the for- 
ests and along the t)eaches, where 
the sea casts up our memories 
and regrets, the dried-up project- 
ion of their first blossoming. 

CAVE CANEM .... 

Beware of the dog - it bites. 



Silent Majority Speaks 



(From the WaU Street Journal) 
WASHINGTON - President 
Nixon has now had an oppor- 
tunity to study the initial tes- 
timony of his Commission on 
Campus Unrest headed by Wil- 
liam Scranton. He has also 
received a report from his 
special adviser on campus 
problems, Alexander Heard, 
chancellor of Vanderbilt Uni- 
versity. Hopefully he will read 
both selectively. Although the 
commission and Mr. Heard have 
elucidated some of the prol)- 
lems facing universities, their 
basic thrust is much too one- 
sided and much too limited 
by contemporary events to be of 
any real value. 

While the testimony before 
the Scranton commission and 
Mr. Heard's report make some 



reference to the need for re- 
form on university campuses 
themselves, the dominant tone is 
something different: The Pre- 
sident is at fault. He must lis- 
ten to the students, respond to 
their views, end the war, and 
if that cannot be done tomor- 
row, at least try to "com- 
municate" with the nation's col- 
leges and universities. 
SICK SOCIETY 
"It may well be that the only 
line in your report that will 
have meaning for our colleges 
and universities is the line 
that reads: 'This war must 
end,' " said Sen Edward M. 
Kennedy (D-Mass.). From Rob- 
ben Flemming, president of the

"The American political system 
is amazingly vulnerable to the ma- 
chinations of dedicated minorit- 
ies," state Ned Schneier and Will- 
iam T. Murphy Jr. in VOTE PO- 
WER - THE OFFICUL ACTIVIST 
CAMPAIGNER'S HANDBOOK. Ch- 
arging that these minorities have 
been more often devoted to the ad- 
vancement of private rather than 
public interests, VOTE POWER 
points out that it is in the ci- 
tizen's power to "reverse this im- 
balance." 

Prepared under the ausoices of 
The Movement for a New Con- 
gress, VOTE POWER EXPLAINS 
THE REALITIES OF CONGRESS- 
IONAL ELECTIONS: why incum- 
hQxAs usually win, who votes and 
who doesn't, how volunteer efforts 
count in a marginal district. The 
Handbook also offers proved stra- 
tegies for nominating candidates, 
fundraising, polling and advertis- 
ing. VOTE POWER will be pub- 
lished by Prentice- Hall on Aug- 
ust 28, to coincide with the cam- 
pus-based grass roots efforts to 
elect a new Congress. 

Most people have good intent- 
ions t)ut are naive when it comes 
to election campaigns, assert Sch- 
neier and Murphy. As an exam- 
ple they cite a particular cam- 
paign that revealed how student 
activists can have an impact on an 
election, at the same time demon- 
strating the pitfalls of bad plan- 
ning. This experience not only 
shows the general function of the 
volunteer worker but also specifi- 
cally where he should direct his 
energies and where he shouldn't. 

The authors of VOTE POWER 
maintain that good politics is ef- 
fective politics. The book could 
prove equally useful to aU citiz- 
ens, regardless of political per- 
suasion, who wish to l)e more ef- 
fective politically. VOTE POW- 
ER is particularly timely for those 



citizens concerned with the cause 
of peace, justice, and the reor- 
ganizing of our national priorit- 
ies 

Ned Schneier, whose initial idea 
it was to launch the Movement, 
was formerly Assistant Professor 
of Political Science at Princeton. 
He is currently Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Political Science at 
C.C.N.Y. His co-authorj Prince- 
ton graduate student William T. 
Murphy Jr., is the son of Con- 
gressman WUliam T. Murphy, of 
Chicago. 

The Movement for a New Con- 
gress has more than 400 chapters 
on campuses around the country, 
preparing to work on this Fall's 
campaigns. 

VOTE POWER has been endor- 
sed by the National Coalition for 
a Responsible Congress.

Panther Trial 

The trial of Black Panther Lonnie McLucas goes on each 
day in New Haven, relatively unnoticed by the press. For 
if the press were to cover the trial it would obviously be 
forced to admit that American justice is being raped in a 
Connecticut court room. 

McLucas is being tried for the murder of Alex Rackley, a 
fellow Panther, that the party insists was killed by a FBI 
informer. McLucas was indicted by a grand jury of white 
men, whose median age was 60 and were selected tv the 
Sheriff of New Haven and included the Sheriff's barber and 
his landlord. This was a "jury of peers" 

The trial jury is also primarily white middle class, and 
includes people who expressed the belief that McLucas 
would have to prove his innocence, rather than the state 
proving guilt. The list could go on. Though it is a con- 
spiracy case, McLucas' case and Bobby Seale's case have 
been separated making the group defense protected by law 
in conspiracy cases impossible. And most defense motions 
have been continually denied by the New Haven court, a 
la Hoffman. 

Yet the press remains, and most of the left communN/ 
remains relatively quiet. We remember the shrieking pub- 
licity of the Chicago 8 and then go weeks without hearing 
about the New Haven Nine. And we remember that the New 
Haven Nine are black and remember 300 years of oppres- 
sion. 

The trials of the Panthers in New Haven should have 
been the main focus of student demonstrating, student ac- 
tivity this summer. For agree or disagree with the Pan- 
thers, as Kingman Brewster of Yale, and by no means a 
radical said, "it is doubtful any black revolutionary can 
achieve a fair trial anywhere in the United States today". 

One of the aims of the May student strike was to free 
all political prisoners including the Black Panthers. All of 
you who gleefully picketed classrooms, ran off millions of 
pamphlets, painted fists on each other and congratulated 
each other on your commitment, should begin doing some- 
thing constructive like supporting the Panther defense 
commi ttee in New Haven.

Princeton Plan Supported 



To the Editor: 

When I left for vacation sev- 
eral weeks ago, I was under the 
impression that the University 
would allow its students and fac- 
ulty members to campaign for 
political candidates during the two 
weeks t)efore this year's elections. 
However, I've been informed that 
the chances of the Board of Tru- 
stees approving such a plan are 
now slim. 

I now understand that Chancel- 
lor Tippo will argue against the 
"Princeton plan" at next week's 
Board of Trustees meeting, and 
that the Chancellor will be able 
to kill the plan for UMass. I 
find this very disturbing for two 
reasons. 

First, the plan itself is valid 
and workable. To say that just 
because a teamster cannot take 
a two week vacation to work for a 
political candidate, students should 



be denied this privilege is ridic- 
ulous. The political process sh- 
ould be open to all who desire to 
wor k within it; the young obvious- 
ly are crying for an opportunity 
to be political, and this plan would 
give them a chance to really 
participate in this year's elect- 
ion. And if one were to argue 
that students are being singled 
out as a special group with spe- 
cial privileges, then perhaps we 
should have a nation holiday be- 
for elections so that the entire 
nation can "become political." 
Second, the Chancellor's decis- 
ion to oppose the "Princeton" 
plan marks a continuation in his 
new practice of ignoring student 
sentiment. First the S.A.T.F. 
budget and now the Princeton plan - 
I wonder if the Chancellor ex- 
pects students to stand mute in 
the fact of his actions this fall?

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Art Buchwald 
took off for Tahiti before anyone 
could catch him. He left behind 
what he claims are some of his 
more memorable columns.) 

WASHINGTON - Many husbands 
don't realize it but their wives 
are suffering from "household fa- 
tigue," a state similar to the 
battle fatigue of World War U, 
only more difficult to recognize. 
I probably would have never re- 
alized that my wife was a victim 
of it if 1 hadn't decided to take 
her with me to Cincinnati, where 1 
had to make a speech. She seem- 
ed quite normal preparing for the 
trip and even appeared to be ex- 
cited about getting away from the 
house for a few days. But then 
when we arrived at the airport, 
I noticed her t)ehavior had start- 
ed to change. 

As 1 paid for our airline tick- 
ets, she said to the man behind the 
counter, "Just a minute. Where 
are our green stamps?" 

"Madam, we don't give green 
stamps to our customers for us- 
ing our airline." 

"Is that so? Well, we'll just 
use another airline ttiat does." 
"Mother," 1 said, "none of the 
airlines gives green stamps and 
besides, this is the only airline 
that goes to Cincinnati." 

I calmed her down and thought 

nothing more of it until we got 

on the plane. The first thing she 

did was start to dust the seats. 

"Mother, you don't have to do 



that," I said. 

"I'm not going to have the nei- 
ghbors think I keep a dirty plane." 

"But they have people to do 
this sort of thing. Now sit by the 
window and fasten your safety 
belt." 

I got her to sit down quietly 
and gave her a magazine to read. 
Soon as the plane was in the air 
she was up. "I've got to pre- 
pare lunch," she said. 

"They have stewardesses to 
prepare lunch. You don't have to 
do anything." 

"Well, I have to get the meat 
out of the freezer." 

"No, no. That's all done by 
the airline personnel. You're on 
vacation. Relax." 

She sat back for a few min- 
utes, but then one of the stew- 
ardesses spilled a cup of coffee 
in the aisle. My wife jumped 
up and said, "Don't worry about 
a thing." She took a container 
of Mr. Clean from her make-up 
kit and on her hands and knees, 
worked on getting out the spot. 

"There," she said after 15 min- 
utes, "Mr. Clean does every- 
thing." 

Everybody looked away In em- 
barrassment. 

An hour later, luncheon was 
served. There were two child- 
ren sitting across the aisle from 
us, but they didn't seem to be 
eating their vegetables. 

My wife looked over and shout- 
ed at them, "If I've told you kids 



once, I've told you a hundred 
times. You don't eat your vege- 
tables, you don't get dessert." 

"Mother, mother," I said gent- 
ly, "those are not OUR child- 
ren." 

"I don't care," she said, "I'm 
sick and tired of preparing meals 
on this plane that nobody wants to 
eat." 

"But maybe their parents don't 
want them to eat vegetables." 

"You're always defending 
them," she said angrily. "No 
wonder they have such bad table 
manners. Sit up," she shouted 
at the little boy, "or you can go 
to bed right now." 

Fortunately the parents of the 
children were preoccupied and 
my wife decided to go back and 
help the stewardesses wash the 
dishes. By the time we reached 
Cincinnati, she had cleaned all 
the windows, washed the ash trays, 
laundered the nai^ins and changed 
the curtains In the bar. 

By the time we arrived In Cin- 
cinnati the plane was neat as a 
pin. 

Happily, after a few days her 
household fatigue has started to 
leave her. She hasn't yelled at 
anybody else's kids in 24 hours 
and just this morning she let the 
chambermaid make up our bed. 
In another day or two she may 
even stop clearing the dishes In 
the hotel dining room. At least 
she promised me she'd try. 



There is one busines just now 
that is doing better than It ever 
did, and that is the flag business. 
The other day, after their latest 
I-Alone-Am-An-Amerlcan Day. I 
saw in the subway a construction 
worker with four American flags 
decaled on his hard hat in such 
a blaze of assertive, aggressive, 
self-righteous patriotism that you 
knew if you accidentally bumped 
into him - this was the subway - 
you could get those flags tattooed 
on your skull. There were also 
two mild-looking pretty girls on th- 
eir way home from the rally, each 
carrying several flags in each fist. 

The fire engines fly enormous 
flags as if they were going into 
battle with the Red Army; the 
garbage trucks proudly fly the 
flag; the bases have flags pasted 
on the windshields. The cops 
had to extract permission to wear 
little American flag pins on their 
uniforms, txit now all sorts of 
serious, grim, suspicious citizens 
wear them. They come jeweled 
lor ladies, In tie pins and clasps 
for gents, and you can get a flag 
looking furled, unfurled, in dia- 
mond shape, with diamonds or 
just rhinestones. 

When Allen Ginsberg got him- 
self up as Uncle Sam for a post- 
er, it was, after all, as Uncle 
Sam - like Allen and Abbie Hoff- 
man, Uncle Sam has only one 
thing to wear. But the lady at 
the drug counter was not enjoy- 
ing life a la Ginsberg when she 
said, "Lissen, punk, the way I 
feel about my flag, I'll even wear 
a dress made of nothin', nothin* 
but the Flag." There is nothing 
traditional, reverential, respect- 
ful in this sudden widespread use 
of the flag as clothing, as jewel- 
ry, as poster, as armband, on 
garbage trucks where Old Glory 
is often allowed to trail in the 
city's muck. The American flag 



is not supposed to fly after sun- 
set. 

According to the joint resolu- 
tion of Congress, June 22 1942 to 
codify civilian use of the flag, 
the flag should be hoisted brisk- 
ly and lowered ceremoniously and 
should never be allowed to touch 
the ground or the floor. When 
hung over the center of a street 
It should have the union to the 
north in an east- west street and 
to the east in a north- south st- 
reet. When the flag is display- 
ed horizontally or vertically ag- 
ainst a wall, the stars should be 
at the ol)server's left. It should 
never be carried flat or horizon- 
tally, but always aloft and free. 
The flag should never be used as 
drapery of any sort, never fes- 
tooned, drawn back, or up, in 
folds, but always allowed to fall 
firee. 

Yet despite this, it is a f^ct 
that on great new office build- 
ings now going up all over New 
York, workers leave our flag fly- 
ing all night firom the girders, 
from the roofs, from the cranes. 
They even paste simulations of the 
flag all over the job, attach po- 
litical slogans to the flag. USA 
all the way. 

The matter is serious. Our flag 
is being desecrated. A good 
American properly does not wear 
a flag, does not become a flag, 
does not tie one flag to another 
like a rag around his arm, does 
not substitute it for a crucifix, 
or a mezuzah, does not rev it up 
with shiny litfle rhinestones. But 
the people who do this are not say- 
ing that it stands for one nation 
Indivisible with liberty and jus- 
tice for all. What I seem to 
hear them saying out loud, in the 
heat of the demonstration, in their 
everlasting public anger. Is: Any 
challenge to me Is a conspiracy . . . 
Go ahead, you Commie conspiracy. 



By ALFRED KAZIN 

I dare you NOT to wear one . . . 
Go on . . . just ask me why I 
wear four flags on my hat . . . 
If your heart is not with Am- 
erica, get your ass out of it. Love 
America or leave it. Hippie, long- 
haired nut, peace freak, Red slime, 
free-talking bastard, shut up, get 
off the streets, disappear. You 
don't wear a flag, I wear a flag. 
I wear it to show that you don't 
and if you ask me then you're the 
enemy of my flag and my country 
and my God. 

So the flag is worn to divide 
our people, to start fights and to 
end conversation, as several young 
people learned to their pained 
amazement when the hard hats 
rained blows on their heads. The 
flag business is to exclude ot>- 
jectors, dissenters, students who 
aren't on their knees all day long 
studying, accounting, people who 
ask questions people who look as 
if they MIGHT ask a quesUon. It 
is at long last a symbol of the 
aroused and militant working 
class - but, of course, this par- 
ticular segment of the working 
class most features crane operat- 
ors and other lordly specialists 
who from the heights of their well- 
packed pay envelopes look down 
on blacks who can't even l)ecome 
plumbers apprentices. 

But let us be honest about each 
other in this great new American 
game of flag, flag, why aren't you 
wearing the flag? Of course the 
flag business stands for the un- 
derstandable resentment by work- 
ers who do work with their lx)dies, 
who put their bodies on the line, 
who feel themselves unmistakable 
snubbed by intellectuals, students, 
book readers, contemplatorsofthe 
human scene for any reason what- 
ever who are si^)posed to have It 
easier - and often do. The flag 
business has natural, pious, even 
mystical roots. This country has 



always l)een strong on churches - 
on joining - but deadly to faith, 
so that anything man-made seems 
more worthy of public, demonstra- 
tive "loyalty" than an invisible, 
impalpable God. Unhappy, divided 
country which Itself aJone. in the 
name of patriotism, has lo sup- 
ply what in other countries was 
created by a common past, by a 
tradition of faith rather than of 
aggressive common sense. 

& America ever "loses" - even 
to Vietnamese revolutionaries in 
their own country! - how can the 
anxious descendants of so many 
anxious immigrants l)elieve that 
THEY are safe - that all material 
and spiritual need s are simul- 
taneously taken care of by "Amer- 
ica"? 

We who are gathered here don't 
usually have much conversation 
with those in the flag business - 
and that may be as much the re- 
sult of our pride as It is of their 
"patriotism." George Wald, the 
Nobel laureate at Harvard who 
made such a beautiful speech about 
peace to students at MIT, wrote 
a letter to the TIMES the other 
day offering to meet with construc- 
tion workers and to talk things out 
with them. Professor Wald un- 
derstandably describes himself as 
a Nobel Prize winner but added 
as further proof of his qualifica- 
tions that he came from a tough 
neighborhood in Brooklyn and so 
knew how to talk to tough guys. 

This did not seem to me qua- 
lification enough, and I guess Pro- 
fessor Wald was not entirely sure 
either, for he defiantly noted that 
he was willing to have this con- 
frontation although ONE Nobel 
laureate, Martin Luther King, had 
already l)een killed for his views. 
Not a promising beginning? Pro- 
fessor Wald Is not more likely 
to reach the "workin g class" 
than are thos e student revolut- 



ionaries who stir up Negro high 
schools and then return to their 
pads. 

This is getting to be a class 
matter. Those men looking down 
on us from the construction job 
across the street may understand- 
ably see us as the wrong class, 
the unintelligible class, the no- 
class un)er class. Most of us 
are all too likely to agree with 
each other and we lose nothing 
by coming together with each oth- 
er. We have not sufficiently faced 
up to the flag business. Its bus- 
iness is with "us" - with the ever 
increasing general protest against 
the war that many a flag- wearer 
must feel without being able to ad- 
mit it to the other man on the job. 
The flag business expresses more 
than the panic of vice-presidents, 
cops and bartenders who see the 
country changing, skidding out of 
confarol. It expresses more than 
the peculiar aggressiveness of 
American manners, the everlast- 
ing spitefulness of those many 
people in our society who have 
nothing In common but the fact that 
they are all "American." Oh 
brother, do I distrust YOU. 

Above all, the flag txisiness 
is an attempt to cover up "our" 
defeat, to cover up the many 
things in our society that are wrong 
and that everyone knows are wrong. 
It covers up the fact, apparent to 
anyone, that we cannot win a total 
victory In Vietnam, that we cannot 
stay there forever, that we cannot 
stop the Vietnamese from taking 
over after we leave. It covers 
up the fact - unendurable most of 
all to those who have lost bro- 
thers, sons, friends In Vietnam - 
that over forty thousand of our 
men have died for nothing.

Journal Absolves Nixon Of Campus Blame 



Cont. From Pg 3 

end to the use of American 
troops In Vietnam will not still 
campus unrest, tHit it will do 
more than anything else to help 
contain it." From Charles 
Paliro" president of the Na- 
tional Student Association: "As 
long as there is substantial 
American military Involvement 
in Indochina, students will con- 
tinue to oppose it." 

And the foimdation of cri- 
ticism of the war Is always 
buttressed with the nation's oth- 
er alleged failings. "Unless we 
can l)egln now (restoring youth's 
faltli by doing their bidding)," 
testified Yale psychologist Ken- 
neth Keniston, "ours wfll not 
only be a divided and sick 
society, iHit a society that has 
lost the best of Its youth - a 
socu tv on Its death- bed." Ev- 
en calm, Mr. Heard recom- 
mended "that the President in- 
crease his exposure to campus 
representatives, Including stu- 
dents, faculty and administra- 
tive officers, so that he can 
better take mto account their 
views, and the Intensity of those 
views. In formulating domestic 
and foreign policy." 

SOCIAL FACTORS 

Even more important are o- 
ther social factors the Scran- 
ton Commission and Mr. Heard 
have yet to discuss. Students 
discover in college for the first 
time that the y will not inherit 
the earth, that the increasingly 
centralized nature of the Am- 
erican economy has foreclosed 
many of the opportunities for 
self-expression they thought 
they would have. 

Bu t no amount of frustrat- 
ion with society justifies or 
explains the destructive path 
some student protest has taken 
recently. President Nixon has 
withdrawn more than 100,000 
troops from Vietnam and insti- 
tuted draft reform that will 
leacMoavoluntee^rmy^je 



has proposed an Income main- 
tenance plan that would be the 
most revolutionary domestic 
program in a generation and he 
is already the first President 
since Franklin Roosevelt to 
spend more on domestic pro- 
grams than on defense. 

It can be argued that these 
steps are not enough. But can 
it really be argued that they are 
so unsatisfactory that burning 
buildings and disrupting class- 
rooms become justifiable or 
even understandable? 

Can it really be argued that 
students, a group possessing 
the luxury of time to use tra- 
ditional political channels and 
the most potential for eventua- 
lly controlling them, deserve 
the President's special attent- 
ion? 

UNCONTROLLED EMOTIONS 
Can it really be argued that 
students are doing anything 
more than indulging their own 
uncontrolled emotions when 
their activities polarize the so- 
ciety and undermine the poli- 
tical viability of Issues with 
which they are supposedly con- 
cerned? 

Mr. Kenlston and others who 
have been counseling the Pre- 
sident over the past few weeks 
may be optimistic about the 
students and their concerns but 
the real radicals in this society 
fear them. They see many stu- 
dents as indulging themselves at 
their expense. The Black Pan- 
thers denounced the white stu- 
dents who took to the streets 
during the May weekend demon- 
strations in New Haven as "ra- 
cist exhibitionists who know 
black people, and not they them- 
selves, will have to face the 
repercussions of their mad- 
ness " 

And Steven Kelman. a Soc- 
ialist and recent Harvard gra- 
duate whose book, "Push Comes 
to Shove," Is the best yet or 
campus unrest, blasted his fel- 
low students before the Scranton 
commission for their "snob- 



bish,. arrogant and elitist at- 
titude." He said uturest would 
continue "as long as students 
continue to regard the American 
people not as potential allies in 
solving problems but as an 
enemy to be confronted." 
SPIRO AGNEW 

Neither the Panthers nor Mr. 
Kelman would appreciate t)elng 
coupled with Vice President 
Agnew, but they share with him 
one fundamental realization: 
Most so-called student radi- 
cals cannot be trusted. Stu- 
dents don't know what they want. 
They identify for periods of 
time with anytxxly from Eugene 
McCarthy to Bobby Seale, but 
their commitments are trans- 
itory. 

Worse yet, students are frl- 
ghteningly ignorant of the pro- 
blems the country faces and of 
the efforts that have been made 
to solve them. They react 
strongly to rhetoric l)ecause 
they have nothing else on which 
to rely. It can be argued that 
President Nixon's withdrawal 
from Vietnam is too slow, but 
those who make this point should" 
be willing to acknowledge that 
Mr. Nixon Is doing exactly what 
Rol)ert Kennedy proposed In 
1968. 

Similarly, it is possible to 
quarrel with the "new urban- 
ology" of Daniel Patrick Moy- 
nohan and Edward Banfield, but 
it should also be clear that 
their approach Is designed par- 
tially to eliminate the statism 
that proved to Ineffective In the 
Johnson Administration's "Gr- 
eat Society" programs. Stu- 
dents, in their false morality, 
refuse to make their acknow- 
ledgements because their his- 
torical sense Is too weak to 
breed In them the tolerance 
that should come with learn- 
ing. 

NOT ND(ON 

Responsibility for this situ- 
ation does not, as the Scranton 
commission testimony and Mr. 
Heard's report come close to 



Implying, He with Mr. Nixon. 
Rather, as only a few brave 
academic souls such as former 
Cornell President James Per- 
kins have partially conceded, it 
lies with the very same people 
who have been devoting so much 
energy to blaming the Presid- 
ent: The faculty and admin- 
istrators of the nation's colle- 
ges and universities. During 
the Fifties, Mr. Perkins argues, 
universities l)ecame so distrac- 
ted by the McCarthy furor that 
they failed to keep pace with 
changing historical currents. 

On a public policy level, Mr. 
Perkins believes this led to the 
universities' advocating two 
premises that were "tiankrupt" 
long before the academic com- 
munity noticed. One was that 
the United States could Inter- 
vene freely throughout the wor- 
ld. The other was that inte- 
gration, accepted by both black 
and white, would be the answer 
to racial tensions. Mr. Per- 
kins says these faulty ideas have 
"chopped up" universities. 
MEDIEVAL STRUCTURE 

The Perkins analysis can also 
be extended to the Internal 
structure of universities. Uni- 
versities are the only institut- 
ions In American society that 
have not fundamentally chan- 
ged since the Middle Ages. They 
stUl maintain highly structured 
tenure systems that protect in- 
competence and cheat the stu- 
dent out of the personal tutor- 
ing that he is told the best 
universities offer. But the 
academic community's own rig- 
idity does not stop it from 
lashing out at the political sys- 
tem and accusing it of the very 
same authoritarianism and re- 
pression academic Institutions 
so perfectly exemplify. 

In fairness, it must be noted 
that the problem lies deeper 
than the campus. The loss of 
historical perspective and the 
diminished and unsure sense of 
the self that it brings have been 
encouraged by other Instltut- 



lons as well. Writes historial 
Daniel J. Boorstin, "In our 
churches the effort to see a 
man sub specie aeternltatls has 
been displaced by the 'social 
gospel' - which is the polemic 
against the supposed special ev- 
ils of our time. Our book pub- 
lishers and literary reviewers 
no longer seek the timeless 
and durable, but spend most of 
their efforts in fruitless search 
for a la mode 'social com- 
mentary' - which thoy pray 
won't be out of date when the 
Issue goes to press I n two 
weeks or when the manuscript 
becomes a txwk in six months." 
PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY 

But inevitably the universit- 
ies must take primary respon- 
sibility for the confusion among 
many of our students. More 
than any other institution, they 
Influence the thoughts and feel- 
ings of the brightest of our 
young. And more than any oth- 
er Institution, they are respon- 
sible for preserving our past 
and passing along the best of it 
to the next generation. 

This does not mean President 
Nixon cannot take some steps to 
ease campus tensions. He can 
persuade his Vice President to 
soften his statements that ap- 
pear to many students to be 
deliberate Incitement to riot. 
He can make a far tetter in- 
tellectual presentation of his 
own views than he has so far. 
He can begin advocating the 
kinds of public and private de- 
centralization that will create 
new opportunities for self-ex- 
pression for students and oth- 
ers. But Mr. Nixon should re- 
sist, and resist vigorously, any- 
body who advises him to In- 
stitute artificial consultation 
with students that cannot be 
followed by policy decisions 
the students desire. The prob- 
lem goes far beyond anything 
symbolic gesturing could solve, 
and besides, students get too 
much of that already on their 
campuses.

UMass Program Aids 
Community Colleges 

UMass is working on a new kind of college teaching aH)roach to 
serve the state's newest and fastest-growing educational area - the 
community college system. . 

As explained by Professor William Lauroesch, director of the Uni- 
versity's Center for Community College Affairs, the new approach 
stresses close contact with students and emphasizes the advising and 
counseling role of faculty. 

This is in contrast to the traditional university emphasis in prepar- 
ation of college teachers, stressing only scholarship in an academic 
discipline. 

"Cfommunity colleges expect all faculty members to perform an 
advisory function," Prof. Lauroesch explained, "but nobody teaches 
them how to do it." 

Community college students need this kind of faculty guidance be- 
cause for the most part they are less likely to be locked into educa- 
tional and career goals than their counterparts at residential instit- 
utions, the UMass ^ucation professor added. 

"Statistics on program changes at community colleges are astound- 
ing," he said. "In some instances as many as 75 per cent df the stu- 
dents change their programs during their two years at a community 
college." 

Examples of the new approach are two sessions for community col- 
lege people this summer involving staff from the Amherst campus. 
One, funded by the U.S. Office of Education, was a concentrated sess- 
ion on counseling and advising for 15 faculty and 15 second year stu- 
dents from Greenfield Community College. 

The group spent a week in a concentrated living- learning work- 
shop at Stratton, Vt., followed it up with a month on the job at the college 
advising and counseling students, and ended with a final workshop week. 

"This is the kind of thing that will continue to have impact during the 
coming year," Prof. Lauroesch predicted. "I also think we've crea- 
ted a model program that can be picked up by a number of institutions." 

The second session, now going on, is a workshop in curriculum and 
instruction for 12 community college instructors. "K's simply for 
people who want to become better teachers," according to Prof. 
Lauroesch. The session will end with a simulated community college 
at the UMass Amherst campus, including students, so Ihat partici- 
pants can try out what they learn. 

In the planning stage is another program to develop a new Master 
of Arts in Teaching program to better meet community college needs. 
UMass and four other member institutions of the Union of Experimen- 
ting Colleges and Universities have projected a highly interdiscip- 
linary program stressing work and study during alternate semesters. 

Community colleges are now the fastest- growing area of the Massa- 
chusetts public higher education system. The first was founded with 
150 students 10 'years ago in Pittsfield. There are now 12 campuses 
is scheduled to open this fall in Bedford and five more new campuses 
are planned over the next five years. 

The University's commitment to help this system is a long-stand- 
ing one. Prof. Lauroesch's community college center, founded five 
years ago with the help of Kellogg Foundation funds, is only one part 
of this commitment. 




UMass has been awarded a $5,000 grant by the Gulf Oil Corporation to support the 
research of Professor Marvin D. Rausch of the chemistry department in the area of or- 
ganometallic pi-complexes. Shown at the presentation, leftjo right Dr. Rausch; UMass 
Amherst Chancellor Oswald Tippo; chemistry department head William E. McEwen.and

lic" chemistry has application in the areas of petroleum additives and homogeneous 
catalysis. The grant is sponsored by the New Products Division of Gulf Research and 
Development Company. 

Hamp. College Rakes In Loot 



A total of $25,000 has been con- 
tributed to the R. Harlow Cutting 
Memorial Scholarship Fund of 
Hampshire College. This amount 
represents the gifts of friends of 
Mr. Cutting plus a grant of the 
Ford Foundation which matches all 



private gifts to the College on a 
two-for-one basis. Established to 
honor the late Amherst resident, 
the Cutting Fund is the first me- 
morial scholarship fund at the 
College. 

"The response to the Fund, es- 



pecially from residents of the Am- 
herst area, has been extraordin- 
ary," declared Franklin Patter- 
son, Hampshire's president. "It 
is indeed a striking tribute to 
Mr. Cutting."

Massages Mind 



Amherst, Mass . - A special 
showing of the NBC News film 
"This is Marshall McLuhan: The 
Medium is the Message," will be 
given at the Amherst campus of 
the University of Massachusetts 
next Wednesday, August 5, under 
the auspices of the University's 
Summer Arts Program. 

The film will be shown in Room 
231, Herter Hall, at 3 p.m. and 
agaon at 8 p.m., and is open to 
the public without charge. 

In presenting Prof. McLuhan's 
basic ideas, and reactions toward 



them, the film alternates between 
comments by McLuhan himself and 
a number of persons who agree and 
disagree with him. The film 
presents visual interpretations of 
the famed Canadian's controver- 
sial ideas about the manner in 
which all modia of communicat- 
ion shape and alter society, con- 
centrating particularly in this film 
upon the new electronic media and 
instruments which are speeding up 
human living, processing informa-

ities. 



Speech Dept. Offers Art Flick 



This Friday evening (August 7) 
the Speech Department of the Uni-

sent Ingmar Bergman's comedy 
SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT. 
Winner of the Special Prize at 
the 1956 Cannes Film Festival, 
the film has l)oth direction and 
screenplay at Bergman. SMILES 
OF A SUMMER NIGHT wiU be 
presented at 7:30 p.m. at 104 
Thompson Hall on the University 
campus. Admission is 75 cents 
at the door. 

SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT 
made in late 1955 by Ingmar Berg- 
man is a nearly perfect work. 



an exquisite carnal comedy. Bou- 
doir fcirce t)ecomes lyric poetry. 
The sexual chases and the round 
dance are romantic, nostalgic: the 
coy bits of feminine plotting are 
gossamer threads of intrigue. The 
film becomes an elegy to trans- 
ient love: a gust of wind and the 
whole vision may drift away. It 
is an arabesque on an essentially 
tragic theme, that of man's in- 
sufficiency, at the same time ill- 
ustrating the belief that "the only 
absolutes in life are the desires 
of the flesh and the incurable lone- 
liness of the soul."

TUESDAY, AUGUST 4, 1970 



University Female Dkaimination Charged By WEAL 



Women are being discriminated 
against on college campuses, and 
are being denied equal rights in 
hiring, training, pay, promotions 
and responsibility, according to 
Nancy E. Dowing, President of the 
Woman's Equity Action League 
(WEAL)^ 

Dowling explained, "Colleges 
discriminate in having quotas for 
women in admission to undergrad- 
uate and graduate programs, they 
discriminate in the hiring of fa- 
culty, they discriminate by promo- 
ting women far more slowly then 
men and they discriminate by pay- 
ing women far less thanttieir male 
counterparts." 

At UMass, s^rozimately half 
of Uie student body is female, but 
only 15% of the University's 1,200 
faculty members are women , ac- 
cording to the UMass Planning 
office. 



This past spring. Harvard Uni- 
versity was charged witti discri- 
mination in a "class action" suit 



The anger that professional wo- 
men are beginning to express had 
been building for a long time. If 
anything, the situation in colleges 
has grown worse for women over 
the years. In 1930, 27.1 percent 
of all faculty meml>ers were wo- 
men. Today, the figure is only 
22 percent, according to the A- 
merican Assn. of University Pro- 
fessors. Since 1940, there have 
l)een drastic declines in the per- 
cent of women faculty at women's 
colleges. 



Although dissatisfaction has 
been in the air, it is really only 
in the last two years that women 
have organized into lobbying gro- 
ups and study groups to press for 
a solution to the problem. 

Armed with statistical data, wo- 
men point ou t that the number 
of women faculty is "depressingly 
small" and that their appointments 
are clustered at the bottom of the 
tenure structure. 




Helen Curtis has been Dean of Women at UMass for 
many years. 



filed by WEAL against all uni- 
versities and supported by the Har- 
vard branch of the National Organ- 
ization of Women (NOW). In taking 
the action, the women pointed out 
that Federal regulations specifi- 



The 1968-1969 Higher Education 
Directory notes that there are al- 
most no women college presid- 
ents outside of Roman Catholic 
girls' schools. Of 2841 colleges 
surveyed, only 211 are headed by 
women. 



cally forbid sex discrimination in 
organizations under contract to 
the Federal government. 

Harvard is now trying to work 
out an acceptable " affirmative act- 
ion" plan for the hiring of min- 
ority groups including blacks and 
women. Regional HEW officials 
hope that the plan wul include not 
only the university itself, but also 
institutions such as hospitals; with 
which Harvard is affiliated. 



If the university and HEW cannot 
reach an agreement, ttie Fedeal 
government's ultimate weapon is to 
withhold about $60 million in Fed- 
eral funds. 



Although women are not in the 
strictest sense a minority (they 
represent 51 percent of the pop- 
ulation and 53 percent of the vote) 
they say that they suffer all the 
"cultural stigmata" of a minority 
Kroup. 



American Council of Education, it 
was found that 3.1 per cent of 
men reported salaries of $25,000 
or more, while only 0.5 of the 
women did. 

Nearly half of the women listed 
their basic salary in the $7000 - 
$9999 range, while men were fairly 
evenly distributed through eight 
salary categories. 

Women, most of whom are con- 
centrated in low-paying, low -rank- 
ing positions, are often profess- 
ionally hurt. "They are a group 
of serfs," said one Boston Uni- 
versity professor. 



"They are not paid on a pro- 
rated basis, nor are they allowed 
to teach uK)er level courses." 

Caroline Bynum and Janey Mar- 
tin, founders, of the new Women's 
Faculty Group at Harvard, note 
that the lecturership and research 
associate positions are outside the 
"real" system. "They can inter- 
fere with professional mobility or 
advancement if held for a long 
period of time." they said. 



But such over discrimination is 
only the top of the "anti -feminist 
iceberg," said Ann Scott, chairman 
of NOW's National Campus Co- 
ordinating Committee,. Althougji 
more difficult to prove, the real 
problem she said, is one of "co- 
vert" discrimination - the 
"largely unquestioned tradition of 
women as inferiors." 

Family life in America, parti- 
cularly since World War H, and 
media, such as movies, television 
and children's books have helped 
to develop and transmit stereo- 
typed ideas of what roles men 
and women are supposed to play, 
and what their behavior should 
be like. These stereotypes are 
deeply imbedded in people's think- 
ing. 

Martin and Bynum say one rea- 
son why the "English men's club 
atmosphere" persists at Harvard 
is the "assumption, no doubt un- 
conscious, that teaching and scho- 
larship are basically masculine 
activities, of only secondary in- 
terest to women. Unbelievable as 
it may sound, some memt)ers of 
the Harvard community state open- 
ly that women are not as bright as 
men. Many others feel women are 
not as deeply committed to in- 
tellectual pursuits." 



Nationally, only nine percent of 
women hold the rank of professor, 
while 25 percent of men hold that 
rank. However, the lowest rung 
on the academic ladder - that of 
instructor - is held by 35 percent 
of the women as compared with 
only 16 percent of the men. 

Locally, the picture is bleak. 
Women represent less than one per 
cent of the tenured faculty at both 
Harvard and MIT. At Harvard, 
only two women are full profes- 
sors, - one appointed this sum- 
mer - and one of those holds a 
professorship established specifi- 
cally for women. 
In the state college system, 
"only a handful" of women have 
risen to top administrative posts, 
according to Janet Murphy of the 
Division of State Colleges. 

In a survey of the nation's col- 
lege teachers, conducttd by the 



Eleanor McLaughlin, assistant 
professor of history at Wellesley 
College. "But the younger girls 
say men don't have to make a 
choice l)etween marriage and a 
career. Why should they?" 



"No woman in her right mind 
would preclude children just be- 
cause she has an intellect," a 
Boston University professor said. 
"Women will have children and 
they will also enter professions. 
Some accommodations will have to 
be made." 

The question which women are 
now asking, and in fact demanding 
an answer to is this: are univer- 
sities will log to recognize that 
women have a different life style 
than men, and what accommoda- 
tions are they willing to make? 

Most of the women's groups 
emphasize that they are not asking 
for special "favors." Instead, they 
say that universities which are 
pledged to providing equal oppor- 



Many women escape, only with 
great difficulty, the female stereo- 
type of "children, kitchen and 
church." Often, they feel guilty 
for pursuing a profession and " 
neglecting" husband and home. 

Matina S. Horner, assistant pro- 
fessor of social relations at Har- 
vard, has pointed out that, often 
"girls equate intellectual achieve- 
ment with loss of femininity. A 
briglit woman is caught in a double 
bind. In testing and other achieve- 
ment-oriented situations, she wor- 
ries not only about failure Ixit also 
about success. If she fails she 
is not living up to her own stand- 
ards of performance. If she suc- 
ceeds she is not living up to social 
expectations about the female 
role." 



But more and more woman, and 
perhaps to a lesser degree, men, 
are coming to realize that career 
and family patterns are changing, 
and that a variety of different life- 
styles are possible today. 

"The older feminism was in- 
volved with keeping up with men, 
with making it in a man's world. 
Marriage wasn't involved," said 



psychology. UMass-Boston will 
offer a course in "Modern Wo- 
men Poets," Other women said 
existing courses should stress fe- 
male contributions. Dean Simmons 
of Jackson said she woukl like to 
sefr the development of centers, 
that speciaUze in STUDIES about 
women. 

Continuing education. Lean Sim- 
mons said it was "crucial" to pro- 
vide a continuing education pro- 
gram for women who want to re- 
turn to school for a degree or to 
renew a knowledge of their sub- 
ject. Tufts has a small program, 
as does Radcliff. 

Part-time work with depart - 
menta 1 pay and status. A Boston 
University professor said women 
should be able to remain as per- 
manent part-time employees, and 
should be able to advance up the 
academic ladder. They should be 
paid according to pro -rated de- 
partmental standards, and given 
responsibility, Princeton Univer- 
sity has already proposed a sim- 
ilar plan. 







Speech Professor Dottie Abramson has taken a major 
lead in several UMass social campaigns, and must be 
considered to be a leader of the school's female faculty. 



tunity for all must make more than 
token efforts in that direction. 
Otherwise, discrimination be - 
comes self-perpetuating. The lack 
of women at universities hurts the 
next generation of female students, 
who do not see enough successful 
women to emulate. 

There are some of the reforms 
university women are seeking: 

Day care center. Advocates note 
that household help is expensive 
and difficult to come by. "If you 
want to get the most efficient 
use of your female staff, you have 
to help them with child care," 
said Adele Simmons, dean of 



Jackson College. Tufts Univer- 
sity is working on a day care 
proposal. Brandeis University 
expecto to have a child care cen- 
ter this fall for children of stu- 
dents, faculty and staff. UMass- 
Boston will have a baby-sitting 
service, and is planning for a day- 
care center at Columbia Point. 

Maternity leave, six weeks of 
paid maternity leave with no loss 
of job status, benefits or senior- 
ity. 

Special courses. No women in- 
terviewed by The Globe said they 
wanted to see a departmental ma- 
jor in "Female Studies," but many 
pointed to the need for individual 
courses in female history and 



An end to anti-nepotism rules. 
Many universities have a standing 
policy that prohilrits a husband 
and wife team from working at the 
same university. Women say that 
policy discriminates against them 
since they are the ones who have 
to bok for a job elsewhere. 



More flexible graduate school 
requirements. Women who marry 
and follow they husbands to an- 
other city have to drop out of 
graduate school, and often find o- 
ther graduate schools reluctant to 
accept their credits. Women are 
pushing for less rigid require- 
ments in the graduate programs. 

Although many of the demands 
are a long way from being real- 
ized, many women see hope in the 
fact that the problem is at last out 
in the open, and is being studied. 
The American Assn. of University 
Professors has reactivated a 1929 
committee on the status of women. 
The committee will review data 
and make recommendations which 
it hopes will be adopted by the uni- 
versity community at large. Har- 
vard has recently established a 
similar committee, under Dean 
John T. Dunlop, to explore ways 
of "increasing women's partici- 
pation" at Harvard.

Board of Trustees ivermont 
To Vote on Budget state

Managing Editor 

The Student Senate's proposed 
1970-71 activities budget goes to 
the Board of Trustees Monday in 
what could be the final step in 
the three month controversy sur- 
rounding the tax. 

The Trustees will also make a 
final decision on initiating a "Pr- 
inceton plan" program for the 
University this fall - a plan wh- 
ich, if approved, would free stu- 
dents from course obligations so 
that they would be able to work 
for political candidates prior to 
the November election. 

It is l)elieved by several sour- 
ces close to the Chancellor that 
Oswald Tippo will oppose such a 
plan, and will argue that the Uni- 
versity would risk its tax-exempt 
status by initating such a pro- 
gram. 

Tippo is said to believe that any 
schedule shuffling the University 
would make in organizing a "Pr- 
inceton Plan" might be viewed by 
the Internal Revenue system as a 
political move, and UMass, the 
Chancellor is said to believe, would 
thereby risk its tax exempt status. 
Tippo may also argue that stu- 
dents would not take advantage of 
such a program and would only 
use the extra time off as a va- 
cation. 

The University's tax-exempt 
status is also involved in the Sen- 
ate's S.A.T.F. budget controversy, 
which will also come up before the 
Trustees. 

Chancellor Tippo two months 
ago delayed approving the Senate's 
proposed budget, citing an "ex- 



cessive" sevendollar increase and 
the allocating of a portion of the 
tax for several "social action gr- 
oups." 

Tippo said that until the Trus- 
tees could decide on the validity of 
funding the groups he questioned, 
the Senate's Social Action Fund and 
the Community Action Foundation 
would have all of their funds fro- 
zen. In response to this action. 
Senate President Glenn Elters an- 
nounced that a sizeable number of 
the remainder of activities fund- 
ed by the Senate would freeze their 
own budgets to protest the Chan- 
cellor's actions. 

Tippo said he took the action 
because he had received several 
complaints from parents about a 
student tax supporting "social ac- 
tion groups," and that the Uni- 
versity's collecting the levy might 
jeopardize the school's tax exempt 

status. 

After hearing both sides, the 
Trustees' finance committee ap- 
proved in principle all of the 
groups funded in the S.A.T.F. but 
questioned whether the University 
could legally collect the student 
administered tax. 

It is now up to the full Board 
to sort out the controversy over 
the tax, to determine if the tax 
can be collected by the Univer- 
sity and to O.K. the finance com- 
mittee's approval of the student 
groups whose funding the Chan- 
cellor questioned. 

The Trustees will also hear re- 
ports from its committees on bu- 
ildings and grounds and educational 
policy at the meeting. 



Funds fo r CX£BS 



AMHERST, Mass. - The Ver- 
mont State Symphony Pops Orch- 
estra under Alan Carter will be 
featured in concert at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts tonight Aug- 
ust 6, under the auspices of the 
University's Summer Arts Pro- 
gram committee. 

The program will be held on 
the outdoor mall, Southwest Res- 
idence Area, at 8 p.m. or in case 
of inclement weather, in Bowker 
Auditorium. The concert is open 
to the public without charge. U- 
Mass summer students witii ID's 
will be given preferential seat- 
ing in Bowker. 

The Vermont State Symphony 
Orchestra was founded by Dr. 
Carter in 1934, bringing together 
serious musicians from through- 
out the rural state of Vermont. 
In 1939 the Orchestra appeared 
at the New York World's Fair 
and soon after the Vermont Leg- 
islature designated it as the of- 
ficial state symphony orchestra, 
the first of its kind in the na- 
tion. The State of Vermont also 
appropriated a small grant tor 
its orchestra at this time and has 
continued to support the ensemble, 
financially and in other ways. 



Program 

UMass has received a $100^00 
grant from the U.S. Office of Ed- 
ucation for its special education- 
al opportunities program, Chan- 
cellor Oswald Tippo announced 
today. 

The grant will be administer- 
ed by the University's Commit- 
tee for the Collegiate Education of 
Black Students (CCEBS) and will 
be used to help support the tu- 
toring and counselmg components 
of the CCEBS program, which will 
begin its third year in September 
on the UMass- Amherst campus. Of 
the 310 students admitted into the 
program over the last two years, 
it is exoected that 290 will be re- 
turning as sophomores and juniors 
this fall. 

Dr. Randolph W. Bromery, pre- 
sident of the CCEBS committee, 
said the University had planned 
to admit 250 new freshmen into 
the program in September. He 
explained that funding of the 
CCEBS program is dependent on 
five sources: the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts, Ford Founda- 
tion, U.S. Office of Education, 
UMass Student Senate, and UMass 
alumni. 

The projected cost of the pro- 
gram for the 1970-71 academic 
year is $1,100,000, of which the 
University budget request to the 
Governor and General Court was 
$750,000. This amount was re- 
duced by the Governor's Office 
to $450,000 of which $300,000 was 
voted for the program by the leg- 
islature. The legislative alloca- 



tion and Office of Education grant 
together total only $400,000 less 
than half of the money needed to 
support this year's program. 

In 1968 and 1969, the Ford Fo- 
undation contributed almost $500, 
000 to help initiate the CCEBS 
program, and has been asked by 
the CCEBS committee to continue 
its support for the coming aca- 
demic year. The Ford Foundation 
is presently discussing with 
CCEBS the possibility of sending 
an evaluation team to UMass this 
fall to study the program. The 
Foundation has already said that 
the UMass program is the t)est of 
its type in the country, and it 
hopes that the published results of 
the evaluation team's study may 
serve as a model for other uni- 
versities to follow in designing 
similar programs of this type. 
Dr. Bromery said that the bulk 
of the budget request for this 
year was needed for individual stu- 
dent grants which pay tuition, fees, 
room and board. The amount of 
each student grant is txased on the 
individual student's need in accor- 
dance with the University's stu- 
dent scholarship policy. The t)al- 
ance of the money requested in 
the budget was to support the ap- 
proximately 60 UMass graduate 
students who work half-time as 
tutors to the CCEBS students. O- 
ther costs include the coordination 
of the program by a staff of six 
professionals who are primarily 
concerned with guidance and coun- 
seling. The CCEBS staff is as- 
sisted by approximately 40 upper- 
class undergraduate CCEBS stu- 
dent volunteers who work in coun- 
seling the incoming CCEBS fresh- 
men.

Approve The Tax 



The Board of Trustees should end the nagging two months con 
troversy between the Student Senate and Chancellor Tippo Mondaj 
by approving the Senate's Student Activities tax in its entirety 

TiDDo's primary reason for holding up approval of the SATF bud- 
get was the Senate's funding of several groups which Tippo char- 
ges were primarily "off campus social action groups. But the 
senate argued that the groups are primarily educational were fund- 
ed in the past, and that, since this is a State University are ap- 
propriate since they support programs which attempt to help drop- 
outs in surrounding communities. Tr.,cfooc Pi 

But when the Chancellor took his complaints to the Trustees Fi- 
nance Committee last month, the committee approved all ofttie 
groups which the Senate funded, calUng them "appropriate and a 

meaningful expenditure." ... , ■ j„^^«„f 

The Full iJoard should second the Finance Committee's judgement 
Monday and end the controversy which has tied up half a million 
dollars of student funds for two months. 



The Statesmai 
Readers Write 




Sir: 

In the August 4th issue of the 
Statesman, there appeared a story 
about FOCUS OUTDOORS and some 
of the exhibitors at the confer- 
ence. The description of one of 
them, with which I am affiliated, 
Save New England, while not fac- 
tually inaccurate, leads one to an 
erroneous impression. Specifically 
the article mentions only "defec- 
tive nuclear reactors" and leaves 
the impression that if only they 
would be built well, they would be 
safe. In fact, while the possibil- 
ity of nuclear reactor accidents 
presents horrifying images of, for 
instance, the Connecticut River 
Valley being "dusted" from a Ver- 
non nuclear power plant accident 
thereby becoming uninhabitable for 
generations, our PRIMARY con- 
tention is that even normal and un- 
interrupted operation of nuclear 
power stations are a health haz- 
ard to the general population. 
This spring at a hearing be- 
fore the Massachusetts Hi se Spe- 
cial Study Committee on the En- 
vironment, chaired by Rep. Rob- 
ert Wetmore, held in the Student 
Union, Dean Hafher of Hampshire 
College, Larry Bogart, who is the 
Director of Save New England, 
Dr. David Ingliss of the U. Mass. 
Physics Dept.. and Dr. Ernest 
Sternglass of the Univ. of Pitts- 
burgh all testified to the harm in 
normal operations of the nuclear 
power industry. Dr. Sternglass' 
testimony especially augmented by 
charts showing statistically signi- 
ficant effects of low level radio- 
activity in the environment on pub- 
lic health, indicate, as many recent 
researchers have corroborated, 
that radiation even in extremely 
small doses, has statistical effects 
on large populations. This doesn't 
mean you or I particularly will 
receive specific harm, but as St- 
ernglass pointed out, maternal and 
infajit death rates increased in 
fallout areas after various bomb 
test series. One of the primary 
findings mentioned by Dr. Stern- 
glass is that the susceptability of 



the fetus, infant, and young chil- 
dren to radiation damage is much 
higher than that of the adult. Fur- 
ther information by citizen's and 
scientific groups throughout the 
country point up unanticipated ef- 
fects of nuclear power plants. 
While some of the plant's radio- 
active wastes are vented into the 
air and cooling waters in a di- 
luted form, biological magnifica- 
tion (the same natural mechanism 
which concentrates DDT and mer- 
cury) concentrates radioactive 
trace elements in the food chain 
and further, within biological or- 
ganisms, concentrations of par- 
ticular substances ( such as iron 
in the thyroid and calcium in the 
bone) further select those harm- 
ful trace elements in vital organs. 
Genetic and somatic damage is 
therefor not reliably predicted by 
reactor outflow concentrations of 
radioactive effluents, by which the 
Atomic Energy Commission meas- 
ures environmental effects. 

S.N.E/s position has been that 
the health and safety aspects of the 
nuclear power program of the 
A.E.C. has been slighted t)ecause 
of the A.E.C.'s dual role as devel- 
oper AND regulator. Further, 
hardware development aspects of 
the nuclear reactor programs have 
been pushed at the expense of 
prudent investigations into the ef- 
fects of the radioactive pollutants 
on large populations and the en- 
vironment. Legislative bills are 
now before Congress to transfer 
the regulation and licensing of nu- 
clear power plants from the A.E.C 
to the Dept. of Health, Education, 
and Welfare. If anyone is interest- 
ed in this question, there are two 
books which deal at length with 
this problem; THE PERILS OF 
THE PEACEFUL ATOM by Rich- 
ard Curtis & Elizabeth Hogan, 
and THE CARELESS ATOM by 
Sheldon Novick. Further informa- 
tion can t)e obtained from Save 
New England at 50 West St., No- 
rthampton, Mass.. 01060.

Counter Culture In Tanglewood

The concert started slowly. 
"It's a Beautiful Day" was good, 
but the hour was early and it was 
still light outside and the peo- 
ple were still arriving and there 
were too many police and not much 
dope was getting passed because 
of all the police. There was the 
usual delay as amplifiers were 
taken down and new ones set up. 
The crowd took the opportunity to 
wander around Tanglewood, a large 
tract of beautifully manicured gr- 
ound which served as the summer 
nome of the Boston Symphony Or- 
chestra in Lenox, Massachusetts. 
Many felt intimidated by it at 
irst because Tanglewood was the 
lome of a hostile culture. The 
people who came to hear Mahler, 
or Brahms, or Bach seemed to 
De looking on from the wings. E- 
/en though they were not there 
in the flesh, they were observing 
in spirit, and mostly with con- 
temi^ for what they knew to be an 
inferior, primitive, musical form. 
You could feel their presence all 
around (sipping Gin and Tonic or 
and Extra Dry Martini with Olive) 
and it was disconcerting. 

But the kid's greenbacks were 
as good as theirs, so the kids 
were allowed to violate the ter- 
ritory a few nights every sum- 
mer at the annual Contemporary 
Trends Concerts. Music was th- 
eir sole reason for being there, 
all 18,000 of them. Music served 
as their unifying spirit because 
they knew what was going to hap- 
pen and the dry martinis didn't; 
before the night was over Tan- 
glewood was going to belong to 
the freaks, and that was as it 
should be. It was designed for 
great music, and great music wou- 
ld be heard. 

The crowd, sensing the immin- 
ent beginning of the next set, be- 
gan drifting back Into the shed, a 
large steel structure with room 
for an entire symphony orches- 



to his knees), looked like a walk- 
ing dry mop carrying a flute. 
He was a master on stage, his 
t)ody contorting wildly with the 
music and his hair shaking in vio- 
lent contempt. They concluded with 
a twenty -minute drum solo. 

The audience responded with in- 
credible noise. Everyone was 
standing on their chairs and sh- 
outing: "More! More! More!" 
Five, ten, fifteen minutes later 
they returned for a short set which 
lasted perhaps another forty-five 
minutes. Fantastic music! 

The changeover time was long- 
er. It was dark outside now and 
everyone was exhausted. Gradu- 
ally, the people who had purchased 
the less expensive seats on the 
lawn (where you cannot see any- 
thing) began to move into the shed 
until it was packed, the ticket - 
takers be damned! 

Bill Graham (Fillmore East) 
came out and introduced "The 
Who." They took their places 
on stage and instantly you could 
feel they were different: they 
weren't tangled up in their gear. 
The amplifiers were ranged be- 
hind them in a solid, high, and 
impenetrable wall. Each of the 
four musicians were clearly dis- 
cernable in the bright white spot- 
lights, made more effective by the 
darkness outside. 

Everyone was hoping beyond 
hope that they might play some- 
thing from TOMMY, but knew they 
wouldn't because they had played 
it for the last time at Carnegie 
Hall. After a couple of warm- 
up oieces, Peter Townshend (lead 
giiiiarlst and composer of TOMMY) 
began ta'king about their Ameri- 
can tour, how much they had en- 
joyed, it Tanglewood was their 
last stop, how they had played 
TOMMY a great many times, and 
how the y had decided to have one 
more go at it. ". . . shall we?" 
were his final words as he step- 
ped back from the. inicrophone 



and began the first notes of the 
overture and the audience shout- 
ed and clapped a resounding af- 
firmative. 

"The Who" must have really be- 
lieved this was the last time they 
might play TOMMY, because it 
came through like that in their 
performance. They were constant- 
ly in command of the music, mov- 
ing from one section of the work 
to another quickly, maintaining 
momentum for the entire perform- 
ance which lasted over an hour. 
Peter Townshend svimg his arm 
violently around his guitar and ju- 
mped and pranced with the music 
and Roger Daltry, lead singer, 
handled the microphone with a jug- 
gler's art flinging it up in the 
air and catching it between his 
legs. He threw himself violent- 
ly against the amplifiers which 
shook every time as if they were 
going to topple over, but they 
never did. 

By this time Marijuana was be- 
ing passed freely and openly by 
the crowd. A policeman migjit have 
been within two feet of a law- 
breaker but the place was pakced 
so tight he couldn't have moved two 
inches. Even if he could move, 
who would he arrest? Too many 
people were smoking. 

The audience responded with 
love to a piece of music which 
articulated their example, and per- 
haps their fate. Some raised their 
hands skyward at the chorus of "A 
SON! A son! A son!" They 
sighed as Daltry cried out: "See 
me, feel me, touch me, heal me." 
Everyone was caught up. The 
assembled multitude rose to their 
feet and joined in with the finale. 
Daltry stood with his microphone, 
his shirt ripped open, his left 
hand extended and his head bowed: 

Listening to you I get the music 

Gazing at you I get the heat 

Following you I climb the mount- 
ain 

1 get excitement at your feet! 

Right behind you I see the mill- 
ions 

On you I seek the glory. 

From you I get opinions 

From you I get the story. 



Women's Lib. to Protest New Haven Treatment 



We want to let our sisters know 
alxjut the workshops and rally be- 
ing held in New Haven next week. 
Women's Liberation groups work- 
ing with the Panthers in New Hav- 
en have called for women all over 
the Northeast to come together 
Tuesday aid Wednesday, August 
nth and I2th. Women are asked to 
come around 5:00 p.m. on Tues- 
day and there will be workshops 
led by Panther Women from New 
York and New Haven. Many of 
us have really lost contact with 
our sisters in other areas, and the 



workshops will be a way of shar- 
ing information and ideas. On Wed- 
nesday there are going to be a 
number of actions going on simul- 
taneously: guerilla theater and 
leafletting throughout the city; a 
rally on the green at noon with 
a female rock band and with Wo- 
men's Lil)eration and Black Pan- 
ther speakers; picketing near the 
courthouse. We will be supporting 
a number of demands being raised 
alxjut the trial of nine Black Pan- 
thers in New Haven. One is to 
declare the trial unconstitutional. 




another for better medical care for 
the Panthers. 

The four women have been in 
prison for 14 months now AWAIT- 
ING trial for conspiracy to murder 
Alex Rackley. They have been 
brutalized again and again. They 
have been placed in isola- 
tion, they have been refused meet- 
ings with i*ysicians of their 
choice, Peggy Hudgins is now badly 
crippled with arthritis as a result 
of inadequate medical care. Rose 
Smith and Frances Carter Iwth 
received sadistic tratment at the 
hands of prison medical staff dur- 
ing their pregnancies. Frances 
was finally given a Caesar ean sec- 
tion at Lawrence Memorial Hos- 
pital in New London alter suffer- 
ing through 23 hours of labor. 
Back in the prison infirmary her 
band iges would be left for two 
days at a time without being chang- 
ed and she would be given only 
aspirin for the pain. Only when 
the Incision became badly infect- 
ed did they give her antibiotics. 
These cases are probably more 
drastic then usual, since the vic- 
tims are female, black, and un- 
disguisedly prisoners of war that 
this government is waging against 
its people. 

Another question which will un- 
doubtedly lead to some important 



discussion is how the action of 
women trying to achieve their 
liberation relates to the black 
struggle, and particularly to the 
BlackPanthers.lt Is primarily be- 
cause the open repressive actions 
of our political system are coming 
down in an immediate and fatal 
way against the Panthers that we 
are using New Haven as the fo- 
cus of many of our gatherings and 
as an example when we educate 
people about the guns and legal 
oppression that will soon confront 
every one of us who is trying to 
LIVE in a nation that is trying 
to kill itself. 

I am writing from the Women's 
Collective here in Amherst. We 
are six women, trying to live to- 
gether in order to share the tal- 
ents we have and the love we feel 
for each other. We are trying to 
deal with our lives honestly. We 
are putting into practice some of 
our ideas about a new way to 
live, and we are learning who we 
are and how we can express our 
lives to other people in ways we 
never dreamed of before. Our home 
is open to any women who wants 
to find out who we are and what 
we're doing, or who just want to 
feel that it could be like to live 
among people struggling to co- 
operate and share with each other 



instead of competing. If anyone wi- 
shes to find out more about New 
Haven and our plans about going 
down she can contact us at: 143

Campus 
Center 
Opens 
At Last 

The University has begun use of 
the new Murray D. Lincoln Campus 
Center , a $16 million conference, 
continuing eckication and student 
activities facility. 

Space in the 11 -story center is 
being occupied as interior finishing 
is completed, according to Warren 
T. Grinnan, manager of the center. 
Full occupation is scheduled by 

Sept. 15. 

Major features of the center are 
an attached 900 -car parking gar- 
age, 220 overnight accomodations 
for 'those attending conferences and 
for other guests of the University, 
conference and sem.nar rooms for 
1500 people, dining faciUties that 
include a restaurant with a view of 
the camous on the top floor, a 
ballroom', a book store and exten- 
sive meeting rooms and offices for 
student activities. 

The design is by the New York 
architectural firm of Marcel Breu- 
er and Herbert Beckhard. The 
firm's founder, Marcel Breuer, is 
known for the design of such build- 
ings as the Whitney Museum in 
New York City and the UNESCO 
World Headquarters buildings in 

Paris. 

The building is named for the 
late Murray D. Lincoln, UMass 
alumnus who founded the Nation- 
wide Insurance Co., and was presi- 
dent of CARE for its first 12 years. 

The center is headquarters for 
the University's new Division of 
Continuing Education. In addition to 
its continuing education and stud- 
ent activities role, the faciUty is 
designed to serve a laboratory fun- 
ction for the UMass department cf 
hotel and restaurant administra- 
tion. The building is connected to 
the UMass Student Union.

retired pretzel salesman, Metawampe. With the opening of 
the new Lincoln Center, the Great One's statue again be- 
comes the center of the campus. Metawampe s crack foot- 
ball column will return to the Amherst community in the 

fall, barring a pretzel strike. 

Floors three through seven are 
in the tower portion and contain 
overnight accomodations for 220 
people in 116 rooms. All rooms have 
private bath and color TV. Floor 
eight has meeting rooms and the 
administrative offices of the cen- 
ter; floor nine has more meeting 
rooms and the headquarters of the 
UMass Division of Continuing Ed- 
ucation. 

The 10th floor has dining rooms

room for 150 persons, smaller 
dining rooms, a cocktail lounge 
and an outdoor terrace.

stone terrace covers tlie lower two 
floors; the remainder of the build- 
ing is a nine-story tower. It is 
air conditioned throughout. 

The first flo9r includes a stud- 
ent activities area with offices 
and meeting rooms, a student 
lounge and a ballroom with a stage, 
cinema facilities and a seating cap- 
acity of 660. On the next floor is 
a large mall area with a book- 
shop, coffeeshop, barber shop and 
an automatic post office. There are 
also sign and printing shops, plus 
a cafeteria with seating for 500 
and a stereo listening room for 
students. 



The new Division of Continuing 
Education will offer classes at Am- 
herst and at four other locations 
in Western Massachusetts, ac- 
cording to Dr. William C. Ven-, 
man, director. The division is 
located in the new Murray D. 
Lincoln Campus Center and in 
addition to classes, will offer a 
year-around program of confer- 
ences, institutes and other educa- 
tional events at the center. 

' 'The Division of Continuing Ed- 
ucation is a self-supporting pro- 
gram responsible for providing 
university-level educational op- 
portunity at the lowest possible 
cost." Dr. Venman said. 

The off-campus courses will be 
offered in Greenfield, Holyoke, 
Pittsfield and Springfield. "We 
will cooperate with the communi- 
ty colleges in these places, using 
their facilities where they are av- 
ailable or making other nearby 
arrangements," Dr. Venman said. 

The following fields will be cov- 
ered either on campus or in one of 
the off-campus locations; Anthro- 
pology, Art, Botany, Chemistry, 
Economics, English, Geography, 
Government, History, Linguistics, 
Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, 
Psychology, Sociology, Speech, 
Accounting, Management, Market- 
ing, Investments, Real Estate, In- 
surance, Food Planning and Meal 
Preparation, and House Planning. 
They will be mostly introductory 
undergraduate courses, with a few 
offering graduate credit. 



The courses will be taught by 
selected University alty and 
will meet one evening a week be- 
ginning the week of Sept. 21. They 
will usually run for 14 weeks. 
Registration may be made by mail 
during the remainder of the month 
of August or at the class location 
during the week of Sept. 14. 

Registration materials and in- 
formation is available from the 
Division of Continuing Education, 
Campus Center, telephone 545- 

0905. 

The course fee for individual 
courses off-campus is $30 per 
credit. On campus it is $25 per 
credit. For certain courses there 
may be in addition a laboratory 
fee to cover materials and field 

trips. 

• The conference and institute sec- 
tion of the Division of Continu- 
ing' Education will include short 
courses on the Amherst campus 
and elsewhere, lectures, confer- 
ences and other educational pro- 
grams. The Campus Center has 
hotel, dining, parking and confer- 
ence room facilities to house such 
programs. 

According to Dr. Venman, "The 
need for continuing education pro- 
grams in the Commonwealth is 
great. Some use increased lei- 
sure time to pursue educational 
goals, others study because they 
find it necessary or desirable to 
change occupations one or more

SATF ApprovedJrusteesToSet Guidelines in Future 



The much-beleagured Student 
Activities Tax (SATF) for the com- 
ing year was finally approved by 
the Board of Trustees yesterday, 
with the Student Senate's proposed 
$36.50 levy left in tact. 

But while the Board Ok»d all of 
this year's budget, they announced 
that they, would set guidelines for 
the Student Senate to use insetting 
future activity taxes. 

This means that all R.S.O. 
groups can now spend money in 
their budgets, and that the Chan- 



cellor's arguements against the 
Senate's funding of "off-campus" 
social action groups was defeated. 
However, the Trustees declared 
that it was their policy that, "Funds 
for student activities collected by 
charges authorized by the Board 
of Trustees be expended for the 
support of student activites on or 
closely related to campus for which 
the charge is made, and that no 
such funds be applied to donations 
of any kind for individual groups

Managing Editor 

or organizations for activities off 
campus, or for the support of pro- 
grams conducted off campus or to 
sui^rt the candidacy of indivi- 
duals seeking public office." 

The Trustees also said that they 
would draw up guidelines in the 
future for the expenditures of stu- 
dent funds. These guidelines, it 
is believed, would outline what 
groups can and cannot be funded 
l)y the Student Senate from the 
SATF tax. 



Trustee Robert Abrams voiced 
the opinion that these guidelines 
would uiKlercut the Student Se- 
nate's authority in drawing up the 
budget and would prevent the Stu- 
dents' elected officials from truly 
representing the students. 

But the Board discounted this 
arguement, as Chairman Joseph 
P. Healey declared that the Trus- 
tees had the responsibility to su- 
pervise all University fees. 

The Trustees will also seek a 





legal opinion from the office of 
Attorney General Robert H. Quinn 
in the legality of the University 
forcing all students to pay the 
student levied tax, and the pro- 
priety of UMass coUecting the 
student fee on each Semester's 
biU. 

The opinion is not expected to 
be ready for several months. 

The motion regarding the Trus- 
tees' setting guidelines for the 
student budget was proposed by 
Trustee Robert Gordon.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 11 , 1 970 



Board OK's Version 
Of Princeton Plan 

By MARK SILVERMAN . 
Managing Editor 

The Board of Trustees yesterday approved a modified version of 
the Princeton plan, a scheme which would keep the University open dur- 
ing the two weeks before the November election, but which would allov 
students to campaign for candidates on a voluntary basis --provided that 
they make-up any missed work. 

sity would have in scheduling the 
make-up days for the class time 
missed, the criticism the school 
might receive for paying faculty 
during a vacation period, the fact 
that not all UMass students might 
take advantage of the program, 
the possibility that the campus 
would be used as a political base, 
and that the plan might prompt 
threats of budget cuts from the 
state legislature. 

However, the Trustees were 
nearly unanimous in approving the 
compromise plan, citing several 
times the value of the experience 
of campaigning and the freedom 
of choice aspect of the compro- 
mise plan. 

The loudest critic of the com- 
promise was Bishop Christopher 
J. Weldon of Springfield, who made 
one of his rare Board appearances. 
Weldon declared, "Other mem- 
bers of society don't get time off 
to campaign before an election. 
We should be training students 
to fit in with society so why should 
we make them an exception to 
society's practices?" 

But he was quickly answered by 
Student Trustee and Student Senate 
President Glenn Elters, who point- 
ed out, "Not all parts of society 
are good and I feel that the people 
should be given more of a role to 
play in the political process. I 
see nothing wrong '*rith extending 
this broader role in politics to stu- 
dents now." 

Regarding the splitting of the 
College of Arts and Sciences into 
three areas, the Board reasoned 
that the school, the University's 
largest academic unit, was now too 
large to manage. The Board split 
the College into groups of Human- 
ities and Fine Arts, Social and Be- 
havioral Sciences, and Natural 
Sciences. 

Each of the three schools will 
have its own dean, however, sev- 
eral inter-college programs such 
as the Honors program, will still 
connect the three areas. 
The Trustees reduced the core 



In other action, the Trustees ap- 
proved splitting the College of Arts 
and Sciences into three separate 
colleges, reduced the core re- 
quirements in the areas of sciences 
and rhetoric, finalized the Amherst 
campus's administrative re-or- 
ganization plan and established an 
institute for governmental studies. 
The Board's election days-off 
plan came as a compromise of 
the Princeton Plan, which would 
have closed the University for two 
weeks and would have provided for 
the eight class days missed to 
be made up during vacation time. 
The Trustees argued that this 
plan eliminated freedom of choice 
by closing classes to students who 
would not have taken the time off 
to campaign. 

Instead, the Trustees voted to 
keep the University open during the 
two weeks l)efore the November 
3d election, and to allow students 
who so wish to notify their in- 
structors in advance and to make 
up any work missed in the ei0it 
class days they spend campaign- 
ing. 

"In this way," UMass Presi- 
dent Robert Wood explained, "We 
still are encouraging students to 
work within the political system 
and we are also allowing those 
students who wish to remain in 
classes to do so." 

The Trustees passed a resolu- 
tion asking allfaculty members not 
to schedule any exams during the 
campaigning period. 

The Princeton plan had l)een 
passed by the Faculty Senate last 
spring, and a recent Harris sur- 
vey indicated that, nationwide, stu- 
dents supported it by a 2-1 mar- 
gin. ^ report on this poll ap- 
pears on page two of today's 
Statesman. 

Other points used in the argu- 
ment favoring the Princeton plan 
included the fact that It would en- 
courage students to work within 
the system, that many students 
would cut classes and work for 

candidates anyway and that cam- 

paigning is a good educational ex- requirement for Math and Sciences 
perience. from twelve to nine credits, and

AT A SPRING MEETING, the UMass Board of Trustees deUberates. The Board met yesterday 
for more than four hours, on a large range of topics. (A Daily Collegian photo) 



Viewpoint 



Trustees Are A Joy To Watch 



UMass Board of Trustee meet- 
ings are usually about as exciting 
as snail races. Yesterday's meet- 
ing in the spanking new slab of con- 
crete known as the Campus Center 
was no exception. The meetings 
just lx>re you to death and no one 
really is quite sure what gets done, 
or who said what. 

But if you concentrate on what 
goes on, which is a great feat of 
endurance and intestinal strength, 
it is a rather revealing experience 
in studying generation gaps, 
bureaucracy, and men fkr removed 
from the people they purport to 
rule. It isn't the most pleasant 
way to spend a day. 

For, through the implications 
of polemics and rhetoric, the 
trustees, yesterday among other 
things, 'indermined completely the 
autonomy of the student govern- 
ment structure, questioned the 
strength of the Student Senate fi- 
nancial policy act, and set itself 
up as judge and jury for student 
organization budgeting proce- 
dures. And they did it with the 
dispatch, coldness, and bluntness, 
which characterize most of these 
cold men who don't know too much 
about the most important group of 
people that make up their uni- 
versity, namely students. 

There were lonely voices that got 



By PETER F. PASCARELLI 
Editor-In-Chief 

steamrolled. Glen Elters, Student 
Senate President and Trustee 
member, I don't think was ever 
listened to. Though his argu- 
ments were valid, his presenta- 
tion concise, most trustees treat 
him with the disdain they obvious- 
ly feel for their house student. 
And Dr. Rol)ert Abrams who rais- 
ed the point that "the Board is 
usurping the nature of representa- 
tive student government by impos- 
ing budget guidelines," was looked 
upon as a wayward child, lost in 
that forest of student support. 

Instead the voices that are lis- 
tened to are ones like George 
Pumphret, who in his dual and 
morally questionable role, as 
Chairman of the Finance Com- 
mittee and on the Building Au- 
thority, when confronted by impas- 
sioned pleas for lowered graduate 
housing rents, says, "Admit that 
you never have brought your argu- 
ments to me," and "we owe it to 
our students to take a look at 
financing", and the rent hike is 
passed overwhelmingly, thus mak- 
ing a low income group pay high 
income rents. 

Or there is chairman Joseph 
Healey, who during the rent ques- 
tion, interrupted one grad student 
to say "you should sit at this 
table," who questioned the Board's 



efforts to explore the rent ques- 
tion fully. Or says its "the Board's 
obligation to set policy for the 
student tax," Or says that students 
must "get it (fees) up or don't 
come." 

Or faculty representative. Pro- 
fessor Henry Korson, who says 
during the al)surd and depressing- 
ly hand Princeton Plan debate, with 
a straight face, "I can't conceive 
of any acuity meml)er running his 
own show" and "we faculty are only 
interested in helping our stud- 
ents." 

The Board of Trustees isn't ex- 
pected to pass everything students 
want, although that isn't a lud idea. 
But they could take the effort to 
perhaps find out what students are. 
A good question is when was the 
last time a majority of thr Board 
met with many students, not the 
handpicked ones at a Swap con- 
ference but just spent a few days 
on campus and met some people. 

But perhaps the Board is afraid 
of this task. So they simply des- 
troy the student government sys- 
tem, take an easy way out on a 
critical question of student parti- 
cipation in the system, and then 
blanch with horror when they read 
from their far- removed offices 
that the campus is internally hem- 
orrhaging.

CCEBS Troubled 
By Fund Problem 



A special education program designed to enroll black students i 
tbe University of Massachusetts is in trouble becaue of lack of money, 
officials said Thursday. 

The university's Committee for the Collegiate Education of Black 
Students had projected the cost of the program this academic yeai 
at $1.1 million. 

So far , with classes starting in about a month, the program has re- 
ceived less than half that amount. 

Unless the money is raised soon, most if not all the 250 freshmen 
already accepted at UMass under the program will not be able to 
attend the university this fall. 

Dr. Randolph W. Bromery, president of the CCEBS committee, 
said Thursday that the committee is now trying to raise funds totaling 
about half a million dollars. 

"We are optimistic we will be able to raise some money, but we 
may not be able to raise all we need," Dr. Bromery said. 

The CCEBS program provides tutoring and counseling services. It 
will begin its third year on the UMass Amherst campus in September. 



CAS Split Approved 

(Cont. from P.I) 



the requirement in Rhetoric to one 
course, either Rhetoric 100 or 
Rhetoric 110. 

The Amherst campus govern- 
mental re -organization scheme 
was given final approval by the 
Trustees. This plan will set up 
five Principal Administrative Of- 
ficers in the areas of academics; 
student affairs, development, ser- 
vices and news and relations. 

Each Principle Administrative 
Officer will report directly to the 
Chancellor and will preside over 
the departments within his Branct 
of Administration. 

The Trustees also created an 
Institute for Governmental Studies 
to, in the words of Trustee Robert 
Gordon, "Make the resources of 
ttie University system available 
to the State in order to consult 
with and aide the people of the State. 

In other action, the Board creat- 
ed new majors in the fields of 
Comparitive Literature Computer 



Systems Engineering, established 
a Ph.D. program in Speech and 
broadened the schools' sabatical 
leave policy to include any in- 
structors who have been teaching 
at UMass for more than six years. 

The rent scale for graduate 
housing in the New North Village 
Apartments was passed at $135 for 
a single bedroom apartment per 
month, and $155 for a two bedroom 
apartment per month, over the ob- 
jections of several graduate stu- 
dents. 

Daniel Collins, President of the 
Graduate Student Senate, argued 
that the rent scale was much too 
high for most students to afford, 
and that he felt more time should 
be taken to study costs before a 
final rent scale was voted on. 
But the Trustees said that they 
were satisfied with their scale, 
and would not cosider the matter 
any longer.

Students Favor Princeton Plan I 



WASHINGTON - College students apparently favor, by a 2 to 1 majority, the controversial "Prince- 
ton plan" to shut down universities tor two weeks next fall to allow full-time work in political cam- 
pajens. 



TUESDAY, AUGUST 11, 1970 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



The finding is contained in a 
poll conducted by Louis Harris & 
Associates that has been forwar- 
ded to Dr. Alexander Heard, ch- 
ancellor of Vanderbilt University 
who is President Nixon's top ad- 
viser on campus unrest. 

The survey indicated that 39 
per cent of the students plan to 
work for an anti-war candidate in 
the £el11 elections. The two- week 
October vacation was fkvored by 
57 per cent and opposed by 32 
per cent, Harris said. 

The proportion who plan to par- 
ticipate is highest among the group 
which took part in the recent (an- 
ti-war) protests, he noted. "En- 
couraging such participation may 
be an e^ctlve way of directing 
the discontent and activism of the 
students toward the goal of change 
from within the system rather than 
protest from without.** 

The poll results appeared to 
show that student protests are 
certain to continue even after the 
Vietnam war is overv Harris 
explained why: 

''Most students expressed a cle- 
arly negative attitude, feeling that 
much of their education was ir- 
relevant, the American society was 
materialistic and conformist, that 



technology was destroying our in- 
dividuality. . . . it is hard to 
escape the conclusion that many 
collegians feel alienated from Am- 
erican socie^ . . . this sense of 
alienation seems to be shared 
by students at all points in the 
political spectrum.'* 

Eighty per cent of the students 
Interviewed in the mid-May poll 
expected post- Vietnam protests 
compared to 15 per cent who did 
not. 

The students felt overwhelming- 
ly (81 to 17 per cent) that the 
older generation did not understand 
their priorities or lifestyle. ^ 

Seventy- six per cent felt that 
most young Americans are not sat- 
isfied with the direction in which 
the nation is heading. By 58 to 
39 per cent, the majority felt the 
United States has become a "hi- 
ghly repressive society,** Harris 
found. 

In addition, each succeeding fr- 
eshman class seems to be more 
protest-oriented. As Harris put 
it: 

"Younger students are entering 
college with increasingly liberal - 
far left orientations. If this trend 



continue s and if the in- college 
shift to the left continues, the col- 
lege campus will be heavily weight- 
ed to the left of the political 
spectrum. If this happens, the po- 
tential for activism will also in- 
crease dramatically for it is the 
left which has most often been in- 
volved in the overt protest of the 
past few years.** 

Despite the uproar over the sum- 
moning of police at Harvard and 
Columbia, the Harris poll found 
that 70 per cent of ILe students 
believed school officials should 
call police if demonstrators occu- 
py or threaten violence. By a 
53 to 38 per cent division, however, 
they opposed calling the National 
Guard to campus in such cases. 

Only 25 per cent indicated to- 
tal opposition to the controversial 
Reserve Officers Training Corps, 
(ROTC), a frequent target of cam- 
pus protest. 

A solid majority (72 per cent) 
believed that firms doing defense 
business should be allowed to re- 
cruit on campus and 61 per cent 
said they had no objection to in- 
dividual professors doing military 
research. 



MusicWorkshopConcludes Program 



A summer music workshop pre- 
sented by the Manhattanville Music 
Curriculum Program has con- 
cluded a two week session at 
UMass. 

The workshop was sponsored by 
the UMass Continuing Education 
Ptogram in cooperation with the 
University*s School of Education 
and Department of Music. Fund- 
ed by the Arts and Humanities 
Division of the U. S. Office of 
Education, the program was a team 
effort by music educators, com- 
posers, learning specialists, and 
students to construct a substan- 
tial program of learning, focusing 
on the interaction of musical ele- 
ments. 

Class meetings, which were held 
daily in the auditorium area of the 
Amherst Regional Junior High 
School, included large group labor- 



atory experienceSj seminars, and 
opportunities for mdividual crea- 
tivity with both traditional instru- 
ments and a wide variety of elec- 
trical components. 

The workshop included partici- 
pants from Massachusetts, New 
York, and Ohio. Mrs. Elsa P. 
Brown and Mrs. Mary M. Dean 
were among the Amherst teach- 
ers attending the program. The 



program was headed by Miss Lee 
Pogonowski and Mr. Cole Biasini 
who have both been associated with 
the Central Atlantic Regional Edu- 
cational Laboratory in Washing- 
ton, D. C. The UMass coordina- 
tor for the workshop w<xs Mr. Da- 
vid Lepard of the Center for the 
Study of Aesthetics in Education 
at the University of Massachu- 
setts.

'Maltese Falcon' Seen Worthwhile 



JAZZ GUITARIST Charlie Byrd will play at the Campus Pond tonight, 
under the sponsorship of the Summer Arts Council. In case of rain, 
the concert will be held in Bowker Auditorium. 



Thursday evening at Mahar Au- 
ditorium the Art History Group 
will present an interesting cinema- 
tic comparison test - the MAL- 
TESE FALCON and the WILD 

ONES. The comparison is of 
Humphrey Bogart, the charismatic 
star of the forties and Marlon 
Brando, the corresponding figure 
of the fifties. Each one displays 
the characteristically brutal per- 
sonality that won them such large 
followings. 

The MALTESE FALCON (1941) 
was a break for Humphrey Bogart. 
Tbe role of Sam Spade, the de- 
tective, was first offered to Geo- 
rge Raft, who declined it because 
he wouldn't take a chance on rook- 
ie director John huston. Huston, 
in his first feature, went on to 
fashion the Dashiell Hammett 
thriller into a film so good, it 
gave a new dimension to the genre. 

Hammett knew the score with 
detectives (he was once one, him- 
self) - they were basically anti- 
social cops, but smarter, more 
mercenary and sinister. Huston 
did nothing to soften Sam Spade's 
character, and the supporting cast 
(Sidney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, 
and Mary Astor) was near perfec- 
tion. The only alteration from the 
original story was the omission of 
Hammett's final scene, when Ef- 
fie realizes what a bastard Spade 
is. Whether Huston is responsible 
for this cut or not, it actually 
improves the story by omitting

Special to the Statesman 
petty moralizing as well as leav- 
ing Spade to the viewer's ultimate 
judgement. Bogart's portrayal is 

one of his best. His voice and' de- 
meanor are perfectly suited for the 
delivery of such lines as, "Sorry, 
angel, I have a pressing date with 
a fat man." 

The WILD ONES, starring Bran- 
do and Lee Marvin (1954)wasLas- 
lo Benedek's only decent film. 
Like many films of its day it 
tried to understand the phenomenon 
of juvenile delinquency in terms of 
cheesy psychology. Hollywood's 
explanation of the alienated anti- 
hero of the 30's is poverty. In 
turn, the antihero of the 40's 
was supposed to be that way as a 
result of corruption and war. The 
preposterous explanation of the 
50's was that boys went bad be- 
cause they weren't loved enough. 
These concluding explanations, 
however, didn't snow the youth of 
the time who perfectly understood 
the characters of Brando and Ja- 
mes Dean and then jeered at the 
cop-out answer to the problem. 
Brando's performances were so 
good during this time they car- 
ried the entire movies along with 
them. 

I'm sure Benedek didn't even 
understand what Brando was doing, 
but young people all over the coun- 
try were almost fanatical in their 
appreciation and empathy. Bran- 
do's inarticulate frustration was a 
rejection of the entire society - 



One Word of Advice : Plastics 



The Plastics Institute of Ameri- 
ca will sponsor a special five-day 
course on "Advances in Polyole- 
fin Technology" for the third suc- 
cessive year at the University, 
August 17 to 21. 

The course, which in previous 
years haJ brought more than 50 
plastic 'dentists and engineers 
to the i..nherst campus from thr- 
oughout the United States, features 
leading experts from the plastics 
industry who present the most 
recent advances in the important 
plastics area of polyethylene, po- 
lypropylene and other polyolefins. 

"For the past two years, this 
course has proved to be especi- 



ally useful to persons working in 
the polyolefin areas and we have 
received an extraordinary num- 
ber of favorable comments about 
it," said Dr. Albert W. Meyer, 
executive secretary of the Plas- 
tics Institute. "We expect this 
year's course to produce similar 
results." 

Dr. Roger S. Porter, professor 
and chairman of the polymer sci- 
ence and engineering program at 
the University of Massachusetts, 
is serving as coordinator of the 
course. Dr. Porter, who has 
published more than 80 papers 
and articles, is a member of the 
Journal of Polymer Science edit- 



orial board and serves as assis- 
tant editor of the Transactions So- 
ciety of Rheotogy. 

Registration for the course is 
still open and persons interested in 
attending should immediately con- 



tact Dr. Albert W. Meyer, Plas- 
tics Institute of Technology, Hobo- 
ken, New Jersey 07030, or phone 
(201) 792-1839 or 792-2700, ext.

but an individual, not a socially 
oriented rejection. The war was 
over and the plastic American dr- 
eam was here. Brando's nihilism 
was emblematic of the "no" that 
came from the guts, ignorant of 
the relatively well -developed and 
sophisticated youth culture that 
makes anti - establishmentarian- 
ism so fashionable now. 

The Bogart and Brando char- 
acters are not essentially tied to 
their decades, however. Brando 
is raw - the total drop out. Bo- 
gart, on the other hand, has not 
gone so far - or maybe he's 
come back part way. He's out 
to use everyone and everything 
for his ow n cynical purposes. 
Richard Shickel, commenting on 
the Bogart character, said of him, 
"His special knowledge was of the 
jungle of the city at night - which 
clubs the syndicate ran, which 
one-arm restaurants served good 
coffee, which hotels a whore could 
use, whic h streets were safe to 
walk upon after midni^t. 

"It was this detailed knowledge 
that set Bogart apart from the 
ordinary lonely male; it was the 
rightness of the setting, mood 
and dialogue that established em- 
pathy with him." Richard Brooks, 
the gifted writer -director, had 
particularly revealing comments 
to make - "somehow you iden- 
tify with this fellow. 1 think that's 
what the kids today see in him. 
He's a man and not a raw kid and 
willing to put his life on the line. 
He's not, interestingly enou^, like 
James Dean and other characters 
they identify with. He is not a 
lost soul in any of his films. 

"He knew what he stood for and 
is masculine and, of course, he 
could say so much in so few 
words . . . For one thing he was 
not a sentimentalist. That is 
important to people today. It's 
not a sentimental world we're liv- 
ing in as far as the youth is con- 
cerned today." 



Summer Arts Present 
Twyla Tharp And Dancers 



The noted dancer and choreographer Twyla Tharp will be in resi- 
dence with her company at UMass this week under the auspices of the 
University's Summer Arts Program, the Massachusetts Council on the 
Arts and Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts. 

Twyla Tharp formed her own company five years ago, having for- 
merly been a member of the Paul Taylor Dance Company. Her ap- 
proach to dance is more of movement than to dance in the traditional 
sense. Miss Tharp and her company utilize natural settings rather 
than the proscenium customarily associated with dance performances. 

Most recently Twyla Tharp and Dancers have appeared at the Met- 
ropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the American Dance Festival 
at Connecticut College in New London, at Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology and at other colleges and universities throughout this 
country. In 1967, Mis5 Tharp and her company appeared in Europe. 
Clive Barnes, writing in the New York Times, has said "... there is 
a visual energy to Miss Tharp's choreography that makes it imposs- 
ible to ignore." 

Twyla Tharp and Dancers will l)e featured in programs daily on 
the University campus for students and others. The residence period 
will culminate in a major program at 8 p.m. in the Curry Hicks Cage 
on Thursday, Aug. 13, open to the public without charge. 

The tentative schedule of the residence by Tharp company calls 
for such activities as four twenty minute exercise sessions daily; 
daily rehearsals for dance oriented persons as well as those without 
previous dance experience; daily 1-1/2 hour rehearsal for children; 
and the performance, analysis and discussion of a dance especially 
created for this engagement, "The Fugue." 

A complete schedule of activities by Twyla Tharp and Dancers is 
available from the University's Fine Arts Council, 125 Herter Hall, 
telephone 545-0202. The pubUc is urged to participate in as many 
events as possible. All will be presented without charge. 




World-famous dancer Twyla Tharp and her troop will visit the University this week, and are sched- 
uled to p* orm several times.

Summer Statesman -* 



Trustee Snafus 



FormerOrsFindProb lems 



The Board of Trustees had three substantial problems to deal with 
yesterday. Two they sort of half way acted on, and the third they 
blew. This is both a rotten percentage and a rotten performance. 



The Board first acted on the Princeton Plan. Their action of es- 
sentially making the 'lecision to take off two weeks to campaign for 
candidates up to the individual student and professor, will protect the 
rights of the individual probably, and also make for a confusing situa- 
tion come October. For not all professors, the claims of benign 
neutrality by Faculty Senate representative Henry Korson notwith- 
standing, will be receptive to their students taking off two weeks. And 
the University will be in a two week period of limlw, not knowing whether 
it is opened or not. 



But in retrospect, it really can't be expected for the UMass Board 
of Trustees to go out on the Umb, or make a courageous stand one way 
or the other. Rather they took an easy way out and accomplished 
relatively nothing. 



The same unfortunately, can't be said for other Board action. 
The trustees approved a substantial rent increase in graduate hous- 
ing units. This is a relatively difficult action to understand. The 
university rate s are as high or higher than private real estate rates, 
yet the university does not have to make a profit, the university gets 
better bond interest rates, the university has cheaper operational 
costs. And finally the grad students are a low income group and hard- 
pressed to pay the high rates. 



But the board passed overwhelmingly the rent increase and have in- 
vited a confrontation situation with the grads. The grads did not want 
the Board to refuse the hike yesterday, only to table the proposal so 
that more study and discussion could be made on the subject. But alas 
it was a futile attempt. 



Finally the Board passed a student tax of $36.50, the amount approved 
by the Student Senate. However, the Board passed along with the 
amount a twist that could conceivably be a severe body blow to the 
student government structure. It is a blow that students should be 
made aware of, and that the Student Senate should be wary of. 



In essence, the Board said it has the right to set guidelines for stu- 
dent tax budgeting. Now, the Trustees never let anyone forget that 
they are the ones who are legally responsible for collecting the stu- 
dent tax. And therefore they feel, presumably that they have the right 
to say what and who gets taxed. 



It is hoped that the broad guidelines the board will make will re- 
main broad, and they will allow for much latitude of decision on both 
the students' part and the administration's. But this hope really should 
not have to be made. 



If there is to l)e a student activities tax, if there is to be a repres- 
entative and influential student government, if the student financial 
policy is to exist, then the Board should stay away from setting up 
guidelines, etc. 



The following is an interview 
with three meml)ers of the Ameri- 
can Deserters Committee of Mon- 
treal. The questions concern the 
formation and goals of the com- 
mittee, its' activities, advice to 
those contemplating citizenship in 
Canada, the leeal procedures in- 
volved, and the work opportunities 
that a deserter can expect once 
inside Canada. Because of the 
committee's press policy, the 
trio declined to give their nafnes. 
Consequently the titles, ex-GI A, 
ex-GI B, and Spokesman C, will 
be used. 

Question: What exactly is the 
American Deserters Committee, 
how did it form and what are its 
goals? 

Spokesman C: The group was 
formed several years ago by ex- 
GI's to help other deserters find 
homes and employment. Right 
now our main goal is to form an 
exile community composed of de- 
serters and others who have fled 
to Canada. By so doing we hope 
to keep American exiles in touch 
with what is happening in the 
states. You sort of forget about 
the U, S. when you come here. 
We don't want to. Someday we 
want to go back to change things. 

Question: What activities are 
you currently engaged in to fur- 
ther your goals? 

Spokesman C: At the present 



Buchwald

Asst. Managing Editor 

we have set up a counseling ser- 
vice to help those wishing to come 
to Canada. We also have a hotel 
for people arriving in Canada with 
no place to stay. Contacts have 
been with the NLF, and the French 
Nationalist Movement in Quebec. 

Question: What Advice would 
you give to those in the U. S. who 
are contemplating coming to Cana- 
da for political or military rea- 
sons? 

Ex-GI A: The best thing that 
anyone can do is stay in the U. S. 
and fight. When your in the states 
you have a lot more freedom to 
effect U. S. policy than you do here. 
Ctoce you arrive^ you're power- 
less. While the Canadian govern- 
ment doesn't put any political re- 
strictions on you, your political 
effectiveness is sharply de- 
creased. It would be better for 
someone in the army, for exam- 
ple, to stay in the service and sa- 
botage than to leave the country. 

Ex-GI B: Frankly it's a bum- 
mer. Once you're up here you're 
up here. People should come here 
only as a last resort. There is 
practically no way that they can 
change the policies that make them 
leave once tliey're here. 

Question: Wi.al procedures does 
the American wishing to become a 
Canadian citizen have to follow? 

Ex-GI B: The American Citizen 
wishing to become a Canadian Im- 



migrant must first file for landed 
immigrant status. He may do so 
by requesting the proper forms 
from a consolate or by obtaining 
them at a border crossing. After 
a waiting period of 6 to 8 weeks; he 
is given an immigrants card. Peo- 
ple are evaluated on their accep- 
tability as citizens on a point sys- 
tem. To be acceptable you need 
fifty points. On initial entry the 
individual must bring: a birth 
certificate, high school and col- 
lege diplomas, about $500.00 and 
passport photos. A letter of em- 
ployment confirmation would also 
be helpful. 

Question: What is Canada like 
to the new Immigrant and what 
are his job prospects? 

Spokesman C ? Canada is much 
like the U. S. was in the fifties. 
There is a more relaxed atmos- 
phere than in the states. The 
police don't wear clubs here and 
there's no racial or student con- 
flict. There is some struggle be- 
tween the English and the French 
but nothing like the racial conflict 
in the states. 

The prospects of finding a job 
here in Canada are poor. The 
economy is inflated and jobs are 
scarce. People with college de- 
grees are having trouble finding 
work. Even teaching positions 
are becoming hard to find. 



What Tahitians Think 



TAHITI- -There have been two 
explosions in the South Pacific 
recently. One is the French ato- 
mic bomb and the other is the 
tourist invasion of Polynesia. It 
is predicted that while the fallout 
from the former will blow away, 
the fallout from the tourist ex- 
plosion will be around for centur- 
ies to come. 

Tahiti and the other islands in 
the South Pacific are caught be- 
tween cultures. The airplane has 
made it possible to fly to Tahiti 
in a matter of hours. The only 
ones who aren't awed by this are 
the Tihitians. They don't know who 
designed the 707 jet but they'd 
just as soon he'd drown in the 
nearest atoll. 

For hundreds and hundreds of 
years Tahitians have set their 
own pace, which is somewhat slow- 
er than that of Americans and 
Europeans. 

To cite an example, as of this 
writing, Tahiti is still celebrating 
Bastille Day, which took place on 
the 14th of July. 

No one is exactly sure when the 
14th of July will be over out here, 
though some hotel owners, whose 
help has not come back yet, are 



hopeful everyone will be at work 
by Christmas. 

In order to enjoy the islands you 
must understand the thinking of the 
Tahitians. 

The American says "Please, I 
must have breakfast immediately 
because I have to catch a plane 
for Pago Pago." 

"Yes, sir," the Tahitian says. 
Pu* he thinks "I have already had 
break&st and besides I do not have 
a plane to catch, so why is he 
boUiering me with his problem?" 

Ten minutes later the American 
says "Waiter, I must have break- 
fast now!" 

"Yes, sir," the Tahitian says. 
But he thinks to himself "If I do 
not give him his breatofast, per- 
haps the French manager will 
fire me and then I can go fishing 
in the lagoon." 

Fifteen minutes later a fuming 
American says "See here, I have 
been waiting for breakfast for 25 
minutes. I haven't even had coffee. 
I have five countries to see in six 
days. When I get back to the 
United States I wUl teU all my 
friends not to come to Tahiti." 

"Yes, sir," the Tahitian says, 
wiping the counter. But he thinks 



"If he would only keep his pro- 
mise, then this hotel would close, 
and I could sleep with my payaya 
all day long." 

The tourist says sternly "Your 
economy depends on tourism, and 
you will never prosper and become 
rich if you don't learn that tourists 
like to be served fast." 

"I know," the Tahitian nods sad- 
ly. But he thinks to himself "Who 
wants to t)ecome rich if it makes 
you so nervous?" 

"Don't get me wrong," the tour- 
ist says. "I admire your life 
style. But one must get with the 
aoth century. You can't just dilly 
dally all day long. You have to 
go, go, go." 

"Thank you," the Tahitian says. 
But he thinks "I wouldn't have to 
put up with all this garl)age if I 
had gone canoeing with Fredo this 
morning." 

A half hour later the American 
is now steaming and shouting for 
the French manager, who is also 
steaming and yelling. 

The Tahitian smiles at both of 
them and thinks to himself sadly 
"I would hate to be a tourist in 
Tahiti because it's almost impos- 
sibe to get anything to eat." 



UMass has been lucky, in that students have had a remarkable 
amount of autonomy in handling their own budgets, as compared to 
other schools. The action by Board could oe a first severe crack in 
the foundation of that autonomy.

The following is an excerpt from remarks made by

"The draft has become an abomination. For thirty years 
it has rested like a yoke on the necks of generations of 
young men. Sometimes it seems to me a grotesque credit 
card, to which diplomatic failures and military ventures 
may be charged and the bill is paid in the lost lives and

Much Talk But Little Action on Campus Reform 



By FRED HECHINGER 
New York Times 

BERKELEY, Calif. - After more than five years of labor, the uni- 
versity reform movement has brought forth mountains of committee 
reports but only little actual change. This is the essence of a report 
by the Carnegie Commission on Hi^er Education, made public here 
last week. 

The Berkeley uprising of 1965 produced voluminous reform propo- 
sals. Campuses all over the country have spent "tens of thousands 
of man-hours of professorial time planning for change." At Swarth- 
more College, for example, in each of the last two years, 22 standing 
committees have taken up the time of 184 members. In the end, the 
changes actually implemented appear to be doing little to bring about 
fundamental reforms. 

students' grievances, which can be 
summarized as follows: 

TEACHING. The basic demand 
for l)etter teaching cannot be met 
by a reshuffling of lectures or 
seminars or by a transfusion of 
better teaching methods into the 
armies of graduate teaching as- 
sistants. The fact is that the 
faculties' time and interests are 
scattered and divided between the 
professors* scholarly pursuits, 
consulting and outside profession- 
al and political activities and te- 
aching. 

Most of the specific proposals 
for change amount "to little more 
than exhortation" or such gim- 
micks as "teacher of the year" 

SMALL CLASSES. Most pro- 
posals insist that small classes 
would improve education. Dr. 
Ladd questions this as an all- 
purpose description. He points 
to arrangements, particularly at 
Harvard's Graduate School of Bu- 



Proposals, says the report, are 
watered down before they are ad- 
opted; inconsequential answers are 
given because the wrong questions 
are asked. 

The report, "Change in Educa- 
tional Policy" (McGraw - Hill, 
$5.95), was written by Dwight R. 
Ladd, professor of business ad- 
ministration at the University of 
New Hampshire. The institutions 
analyzed are the Berkeley campus 
of the University of California, 
the University of New Hampshire, 
the University of Toronto, S war th- 
more, Wesleyan, Michigan State, 
Duke, Brown, Stanford, Columbia 
and U.C.L.A. 

Many students "have a generally 
unfavorable attitude toward alma 
mater," the report says, adding, 
carefiU examination of the evi- 
dence indicates that the dissatis- 
faction cannot realistically be at- 
tributed merely to Vietnam and the 
racial crisis. There are basic 
educational issues underlying the 



siness, where classes of 100 or 
more students are successfully 
made to "take positions and de- 
fend them orally." But, he adds, 
if small classes are considered an 
important element in improving 
education, "one must face their 
very high cost." 

CURRICULUM. Although re- 
quired courses and even required 
fields of study, which in the past 
were the mark of the general ed- 
ucation curriculum, are now un- 
der heavy attack, there is very 
little agreement on anything other 
than to dro p them. General 
education requirements were or- 
iginally intended to help reverse 
the technological and materialistic 
trends toward early, job- oriented 
specialization. Today students 
who are hostile to materialism 
ought to cheer these efforts. But 
they hate rules even more. They 
do not want to be told what they 
must study. 

Yet, when the requirements are 
dropped, and everybody does his 
own thing, the effect may well be 
a return lo the fragmentation and 
specialization that dominated Am- 
erican higher education Iwfore 
general education became the pro- 
gressive reform of the 1940's. 

GRADING. There has been much 
discussion of grading reforms; but 
the only major change, if it can 
be called that, has been the in- 
troduction of some options to takf 

Disorders Blamed 



a certain number of courses on a 
pass- fail basis, without any indi- 
cation of the actual quality of the 
work performed. 

Yet, even in the matter of grad- 
ing reform - demanded largely be- 
cause "grading creates fear and 
anxiety" - there is remarkably 
little agreement. Virtually all stu- 
dies sampled, by the report stress 
the necessity for some evaluation 
of student performance. Indeed, 
putting an end to such evaluation 
might simply be another step in 
the direction of ignoring the stu- 
rtpnt. 

What emerges from the Carneg- 
ie study is something far more 
fundamental than the question of 
academic changes. 

"One senses a possilde loss of 
confidence," says the report. 
When Harvard's prescription, 
"General Education in a Free 
Society" - for the Red Book, 
as it was generally called - was 
published in 1945, Colleges across 
the Country saw an unassailable 
value in asking undergraduates to 
take a certain "distfibution" of 
courses in the humanities, the so- 
cial sciences and the natural sci- 
ences. There was still enough 
common ground among academic 
leaders to make them feel that they 
could outline a minimum of shared 
cultural, scientific and intellectual 
baggage that all educated men 
might carry. 



Today such agreement has col- 
lapsed. Faculty members them- 
selves are no longer sure what 
kind of general education might 
serve a ft"ee society, or even 
whether society has a chance to 
remain free. Thus, they readily 
caved in under the students' as- 
sault against all requirements. 

Leadership, under such condit- 
ions, becomes negative. Faculty, 
administration and students all talk 
about power and how to let every- 
body participate in its exercise. 
Behind the slogans looms the real- 
ity of a general lack of positive 
powers. If the faculty insists, as 
it always has that it ought to be 
the central power, the fact is that 
at present it is exercising main- 
ly the negative power of the veto, 
except where it joins the revol- 
utionary efforts of usurpation of 
power by radical students. 

Is there any answer? The re- 
port simply says "someone must 
have the power to make decis- 
ions." As long as the universi- 
ties remain unsure of their miss- 
ion in the modern world, the chan- 
ces for academic reform remain 
dim. 



Insurance Costs Soar For Nation 's Colleges 



Insurance costs for the protec- 
tion of colleges and universities 
and for public buildings in this 
period of riot, strife and civil 
disorder are soaring. 

They have become like the ac- 
cident-prone motorist - a poor in- 
surance risk. 

Many insurance companies want 
nothing to do with educational pro- 
perties at any price today. 

In Massachusetts, colleges and 
universities have been cast into the 
bottom -of- the ladder status of the 
assigned risk pool, where the 
companies reluctantly assume 
their share of fire and other in- 
surance coverage just as they do 
for motorists who have had so 
many accidents no company wants 
any part of them. 

President Charles l.t>chotuand 
of Brandeis University disclosed, 
"We are having extreme difficulty 
in getting any insurance company 
to underwrite the Brandeis 
policy." 



Many of the local educational 
institutions report their insurance 
costs have doubled in the past 
year. 



The state of Maine, which con- 
tracts with private companies for 
the protection of its public build- 
ings rather than insure itself, as 
does Massachusetts, will pay three 
times as much for insurance this 
year as last year. 

Maine authorities said it was 
"due mainly to civil disturbances 
elsewhere in America " 



An insurance mdustry spokes- 
man in Massachusetts said com- 
panies are reluctant to write po- 
licies for educational properties 
because of the "general atmos- 
phere," a refined way of referring 
to the torch being put to the 
dean's office. 



However, Robert S. Mullen, di- 
rector of purchasing and insur- 
ance at Harvard University, called 
the claim of losses due to student 
turmoil "highly exaggerated." He 
said he based this contention on 
figures he has seen relating in- 
surance losses to student turmoil. 

Mullen disclosed that the East- 
ern and Western Associations of 
College and University Insurance 
Managers are conducting a study 
to determine precisely what is the 
ratio between losses and disorder 
on campus. 



"We think the educational com- 
munity will be able to prove that 
there has been no real increase 
in losses due to what little stu- 
dent there has been," he said. 

THE HARVARD official predict- 
ed that if the insurance rates keep 
soaring, more and more colleges 
will adopt self- insurance. 

"And those that aren't really 
big enough to suj^rt a program 
by themselves will probably com- 
bine to set up joint self- insurance 
funds," Mullen added. 



Harvard has its own self-insur- 
ance for fire in academic build- 
ings, and thus is not dependent 
on private companies. It must 
pay its own losses, but has ac- 
cumulated funds with which to do 
so by not having to pay premiums. 



The state of Massachusetts has 
the same system. If a building is 
burned at the University of Mass- 
achusetts, money is appropriated 
to repair it. 



Mullen pointed out Harvard has 
had the system for 17 years "and 
finds it very successful." 



Conservatives Eye Disruptions 



Summer publication at th* Univertity of Massochutwtts, th« Stotatman it in 
no way r*lot«d to th* Maxochusatts Daily Collegian, and is pubiithad waakly 
and bi-w««klv from Jun* 24 to August 30. 



A group of student conservatives 
said yesterday that they planned 
to use injunctions and other le- 
gal devices in the coming school 
year to reduce the number and 
extent of college disruptions. 

The students, all members of the 
Young Americans for Freedom, 
held a leadership conference of 
forty students at the Fordham Uni- 
versity campus center in the 
Bronx. 

The purpose of the meeting was 
to discuss countertactics against 
the left as well as conservative 
philosophy on foreign and domes- 
tic issues. 

The Young Americans for Free- 
dom brought campus veterans of 
confrontations to tell incoming f re - 
shmen and sophomores how to keep 
colleges running smoothly despite 



disruptive tactics of some stu- 
dent groups. 

"Anybody has a right to demon- 
strate," said Alan Gottlieb, a sen- 
ior in nuclear engineering at the 
University of Tennessee. "But 
there should be no infringement 
on students' rights." 

Injunctions against student rad- 
icals were described as the best 
way to prevent not only disrupt- 
ions, but also violent confrontat- 
ions leading to sympathy for cam- 
pus radicals. 

"They are the most effective 
method (to quell disorders) with- 
out turning off the majority of 
silent or apathetic students and 
their parents who are watching but 
not saying anything," said James 

Kelly. 
Mr. Kelly, a sophomore in po- 



litical science, is transferring to 
another college from St. John's 
this fall. 

Other legal moves possible, 
where necessary, the students 
said, were calling for an In- 
ternal Revenue Service review of 
the tax exemption of biased stu- 
dent newspapers and restricting 
the use of mandatory student feer:. 

Herbert Stupp said that there was 
a successful move at the Univer- 
sity of New Hampshire to stop the 
student government from paying 
radical speakers out of student 
fees. 

Mr. Stupp is chairman of both 
the College Conservative Council 
and the Youth for Buckley - Ja- 
mes L. Buckley, Conservative can- 

(Cont. on P. 8) 



"HOPEFULLY, under this self- 
insurance system you're not pay- 
ing any profit into the insurance 
business and you're investing the 
money," he said. 

"There is a great risk, of 
course, in the fact that the fund 
is not strong enough to stand a 
really catastrophic event, bat it 
has worked satisfactorily so far." 



Mullen called it "not surpris- 
ing that insurance rates are climb- 
ing and that companies are getting 
more selective about their risks. 

"We must not lose sight of the 
fact that insurance reserves have- 
n't been rising as fast as the scoe 
of the risks the insurance com- 
panies are being asked to as- 
sume," he said. 



"And. of couse, if there is tur- 
moil at one place, it flashes across 
the country, and the insurance peo- 
ple think it could haroen anywhere. 

"THEY ARE HITTING the uni- 
versities in two ways. One is by 
raising the deductible in some 
cases to as high as $250,000 and 
also in increasing the premiums 
for coverage." 



The deductible is the clause in 
the policy relieving the insurer of 
responsibility for an initial spe- 
cific loss. 

At Tufts University it was re- 
ported that the "rates have more 
than doubled for the coming school 
year starting in September, and 
for the first time Tufts has been 
forced to absorb the deductible." 

Boston College reported its tire 
and extended coverage have in- 
creased twice over a year ago with 
costs rising to $75,000 a year. 
But it said this was not attributed 
wholly to the current situation, 
adding there were other factors in- 
volved. 

THE ASSISTANT to the trea- 
surer at Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology said there "has 
been a slight increase in the de- 
ductible, but the rates are still 
the same; they haven't hit us yet." 

Dr. Schottland, the Brandeis' 
President, said, with respect to the 
difficulty that university is hav- 
ing, that an insurance company 
currently is studying the problem 
but that "in any event there will 
be a substantial increase in the 
premium." 



The state insurance department 
on June 22 approved an overall 
adjustment on fire insurance rates 
for Massachusetts. The rates were 
applicable to different classes. 
Some of the rates went down, but 
others rose nearly 10 per cent. 
It was difficult to ascertain the 
various classes that would be 
applicable to college and univer- 
sity buildings. 

MASSACHUSETTS has the so- 
called "fair plan" for insurance 
in the college and university cate- 
gory. This is similar to what is 
commonly known as the assigned 
risk pool in the compulsory auto- 
mobile insurance liability cate- 
gory. 

Companies wanting no part of 
college or university coverage de- 
cline to renew the policies and 
then they are referred to the pool. 
On the t)asis of a percentage of 
their total writings companies are 
obliged to write their share of 
this unwanted business. 



When told some educational in- 
stitutions were considering band- 
ing together to form a self- in- 
sured group, one company spokes- 
man commented: "Good luck to 
them. We don't want them at any 
price." 

Another said "Maine was lucky" 
to get insurers. He pointed out 
that the University of Maine was 
among the properties covered. 



Willard W. Lehr Jr. Chairman 
of Maine's Insurance Advisory 
Board, said civil unrest through- 
out the country "has caused com- 
panies to reappraise their under- 
writing procedure." 

THERE ARE MANY commu- 
nities and prol)ably states that have 
found it very difficult to get in- 
surance on public buildings, and of 
course, this filters down to the 
private buildings as well," Lehr 
added. 



"Maine has been relatively free 
from civil violence, but that 
doesn't mean it couldn't happen 
here." 

Lehr said it should be pointed 
out that part of the Maine insur- 
ance increase was due to in- 
creased valuation represented by 
new buildings and new equipment.

Oregon U. Creates Stir By Re-Instating Froines 



EUGENE, Ore. - Dr. John R. 
Froines, who was acquitted of 
conspiracy at the "Chicago 7" 
trial, has l)een reinstated to the 
University of Oregon faculty in a 
decision that is likely to become a 
major issue at next year's session 
of the Oregon Legislature. 

The university president, Robert 
D. Clark, announced that special 
three-man boards of inquiry had 
found no grounds to remove the 
assistant professor of chemistry. 

Dr. Froines, 31 years old, had 
been on unpaid leave for the last 
year while gaining acquittal in Chi - 
cago on a charge of crossing state 
lines to conspire to commit vio- 
lence during the 1968 Democratic 
National Convention. However, he 
was sentenced to six months im- 
prisonment by Federal District 
Judge Julius J. Hoffman for con- 
tempt of court, a ruling he is ap- 
pealing. 

Despite the Chicago acquittal, 
conservative legislators led by 
Representative Stafford Hansell, 
an eastern Oregon rancher who is 



co-chairman of the Joint Ways and 
Means Committee, demanded that 
Dr. Froines be removed from the 
faculty. 

Mr. Hansell, a Republican, char- 
ged that Dr. Froines had "given 
the State of Oregon a real black eye 
throu^iout the nation" by advo- 
cating student militancy and the 
freeing of Bobby G. Seale, the 
Black Panther party chairman. 
However, Dr. Clark said in a 
1,000-word statement this week 
that the committee had found no 
cause in state law or university 
regulations to require Dr. Froines 
dismissal for conduct "flagrantly 
unbecoming a faculty member." 
That was the only base on which 
he could have acted. Dr. Clark 
said. 

"We ought to distinguish clear- 
ly between speech and unlawful 
action," Dr. Clark said. "We 
ought not to tremble in the pre- 
sence of ideas that seem to thre- 
aten us. We ought to combat them, 
not with force or coercion, but 
with reason and with better Id- 




JOHN FROINES 



eas." 

He also rejected the suggest- 
ion ttiat Dr. Froines be given no- 
tice that he would l>e dismissed 
after the coming academic year. 
"Merely to postpone an unwarran- 



ted action does not make it more 
acceptable," he said. 

The announcement to permit Dr. 
Froines return followed by one day 
a decision by Dr. Clark to term- 
inate the pay of Dr. Iving W. Wa- 
iner, a research associate in the 
University Institute of Molecular 
Biology, who was paid from a 
Federal grant. 

Dr. Clark invoked the law that 
prohiliits use of Federal fUnds to 
pay salaries of persons who en- 
gage in campus disruptions. Dr. 
Wainer had been accused of taking 
part this May in two demonstra- 
tions against the university's Re- 
serve Officer Training Corps. 

After his reinstatement. Dr. Fr- 
oines said there should be strikes 
in every school this fall to pro- 
test the war. "I don't want to 
get myself fired," he told a news 
conference, "but there comes a 
time when we have to take a stand. 
I will support a strike if a strike 
is called." 

Dr. Froines indicated that he 
may ask for another leave of ab- 



sence this fall to help free Mr. 
Seale, who is charged with mur- 
der in New Haven. 

The rehiring decision brought a 
pledge from Mr. Hansell that he 
will do everything possible at the 
1971 Legislature to bring about 
Dr. Froines' dismissaL 

It also caused displeasure to 
Gov. Tom McCall, a Republican 
who faces a tough fight for re- 
election from State Treasurer Ro- 
bert Straub. 

Mr. McCall, acknowledging the 
legality of the decision, said, "I 
know what should be done, but 
there is no legal way that it can 
be accomplished. I cannot do an 
illegal act even if I believe I'm 
doing it for a good purpose." 

Noting the State Board of High- 
er Education was formulating a 
new code o f conduct for faculty 
members, the Governor put Dr. 
Froines "on notice" that "he must 
conduct himself as a responsible 
member of the faculty" or else 
"be subjected to immediate dis- 
ciplinary action."

SCUPpers Descend 
On Campus Center 

The newly opened Murray D. Lincolm Campus Center at CJMass 
Amherst is hosting it first conference through August 12 with the 
fifth annual meeting of the Society for College and University Planning 

The 300 SCUP conferees will include college and university execu- 
tives and planning officers, architects, and engineers from all parts 
of the United States and abroad. 

The conference opened Sunday with a reception given by Chancellor 
Oswald Tippo and the UMass Board of Trustees honoring architects 
who have designed UMass buildings or have assisted in the Univer- 
sity's architectural planning. 

Among those to be honored are David Anderson, Herbert Beckhard 
Pietro Belluschi, Marcel Breuer, John Clancy, Barry and Paul Col- 
etti, John Dinkeloo, Vincent Kling, Per Nylen, Lawrence Nutty, Kevin 
Roche, Hideo Sasaki, Edward DureU Stone, Hugh Stubbins, and John 
Carl Warnecke. 

The major objective of the conference will be to explore the opportun- 
ities and problems of "Participation in Planning." The presentation 
of case studies will be followed by in-depth panel discussions and in- 
terchange with conference participants i n workshops for individual 
case studies. The principal speaker at the conference will be Presi- 
dent Harland Randolph of Federal City College in Washington, D.C.

Students Having Trouble Finding School Loans 



College students who have wait- 
ed until now to see their friend- 
ly, local banker about a loan to 
pay for school this fall are like- 
ly to have trouble. 

If they are first-time borrowers 
in the Federal guaranteed student 
loan program and their parents 
have no bank accounts, their chan- 
ces of getting a loan are slim. 

Even though the state's total 
number of student loans is up some 
20 percent over this time last 
year, college financial aid officers 
report that students are having dif- 
ficulty getting loans and some ma- 
jor banks in the Boston area are 
telling prospective new borrowers 
that there is no more money a- 

Because the guaranteed loan pro- 
gram represents the largest single 
source of government-sponsored 
student aid - $840 million loaned 
last year - the loan difficulty is 
especially crucial at a time when 
rising college costs are pushing 
many students and their parents 
past the brink of their own re- 
sources. 

Amounts appropriated for the 
other government aid programs - 
National Defense Student Loans, 
Educational Opportunity Grants 
and Work-Study Grants - are ex- 



pected to be increased this year, 
but not enough to keep up with 
student demands when total costs 
for some private colleges are in- 
ching toward $5000 a year and pu- 
blic colleges are in the $2000 bra- 
cket. 

Under the five-year-old guaran- 
teed loan program, the Federal 
government pays the interest on 
the loan while the student is in 
college and for nine months af- 
ter he graduates and guarantees 
payment even if the student de- 
faults or dies. Students can bor- 
row up to $1000 per year and a 
maximum of $7500 for college and 
graduate school. 

Last summer's student loan cri- 
sis revolved around the fact that 
banks were unwilling to make loans 
at the statutory interest limit of 7 
percent when the prime rate was 
8 1/2 per cent. But Congress 
finally raised the limit to 10 per- 
cent and indications are that some 
students who wanted loans got 
them. 

This summer's problem is li- 
quidity - a time of extremely 
tight money when banks are reluc- 
tant to tie up their money for 
5 to 10 years. 

One solution for the liquidity 
problem, proposed in President 



Nixon's higher education program, 
is for a secondary market for 
student loans similar to the Fe- 
deral National Mortgage Associa- 
tion (Fanny Mae) for home loans. 
The proposed National Student 
Loan (which has been dubbed Sal- 
ly Mae) would buy the loans from 
banks, reducing their profit slight- 
ly but making the money availa- 
ble to the bank to be lent again. 

The proposal has won almost 
unaminous endorsement but it is 
not expected to win congressional 
approval before late winter or 
early next spring. 

Joseph F. Cosgrove, executive 
director of the Massachusetts Hi- 
0ier Education Assistance Corpo- 
ration, which handles the present 
Federal loan program in the sta- 
te, has testified in suRwrt of 
Sally Mae and says that it is 
"the only thing needed now to 
make the guaranteed loan program 
perfect." 

Cosgrove says Massachusetts 
hasn't been bothered yet by the 
liquidity crunch. He noted that 
both the number of loans made 
and the dollar amount are up more 
than 20 percent over the first 
seven months of last year. 

"A very very small part of 
our applicants aren't getting 



loans," he said. "You can't 
fault the banks of Massachu - 
setts." 

College financial aid officers 
and banks themselves tell a some- 
what different story, however. 
While most agree that the loan 
situation is not as bad as it was 
this time last summer, signifi- 
cant numl)ers of students apparen- 
tly are not able to obtain loans. 

"We are continually hearing 
from students that banks are tel- 
ling them they have exhausted 
their funds or won't give them 
loans because they are not cus- 
tomers," Grant Curtis, Tufts fi- 
nancial aid officer, said. 

John P. Reardon, associate dean 
of admissions and financial aid at 
Harvard, said that less than one- 
third of the students who aj^lled 
for loans this year have received 
them. 

James Grenato, student loan of- 
ficer of the Middlesex Bank, said 
loans are handed out on a first - 
come first -served basis although 
"we did try to keep some of 
our larger depositors happy." 

But Middlesex used up all its 
funds for new student loans two 
weeks ago. The First National 
Bank is telling callers that "no 
funds are available for students 



who haven't borrowed from us 
before" and the National Shaw- 
mut Bank has not made any new 
student loans in a year and a 
half. Bank officers say they will 
continue to make loans to stu- 
dents who have borrowed from 
them once. 
[From The Boston Globe) 



(Cont. from P. 5) 
didate for United States Senator 
from New York. 

The students asserted that stu- 
dent government on most campuses 
was "big business," handling thou- 
sands of dollars in fees. 

There are about 68 young Am- 
ericans for freedom chapters in 
New York State , said Vincent 
Rigdon, a senior in history at 
Columbia University. Mr. Rig- 
don, state chairman of the group, 
said 40 to 50 of the chapters 
were in the greater New York 

dTGSU 

The students noted that the group 
had "three times as many mem- 
bers as S.D.S.", the Students for a 
Democratic Society. The Young 
Americans, they said, has about 
53,000 members nationally. 



Famous Names in Headlines 



It's The Young Who Get Busted For Marijuana 



The arrest on marijuana charges 
of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and R. 
Sargent Shriver 3d, 16-year-old 
cousins, which came to light last 
week when they were placed on 
probation at a Cape Cod court 
house, added two more famous 
names to a long list of the child- 
ren of politically prominent fa- 
thers who have gotten into the same 
sort of trouble. The fathers in- 
clude Senators George McGovern, 
Alan Cranston and Ernest HoU- 
ings, Gov. William Cahill of New 
Jersey, and Howard Samuels, for- 
mer Undersecretary of Commerce 
and a losing candidate this year 
for the Democratic gubernatorial 
nomination in New York. 

While these arrests can be tak- 
en to exemplify an admirable even- 
handedness in law enforcement, it 
can also be argued that the impact 
of the narcotics laws, particular- 
ly those relating to mari- 
juana, which is the mildest and 
probably the most widely used 
such substance, fills with dis- 
proportionate rigor on the young, 
as well as on the Black, Puerto 
Rican and Mexican American mi- 
norities. For example, in New 
York City last year, 5,200 arrests 
were made for illegal possession 
or sale of marijuana and hashish. 
Of these, 3,100 involved persons 
under the age of 21. 



Into the Streets 
For one thing, youngsters don't 
generally have apartments or 
houses of their own, and the fact 
that they know their parents dis- 
approve of the use of marijuana 
forces them into the streets, their 
cars, or, in the case of the Ken- 
nedy and Shriver boys, into what 
has been described as a psyche- 
delically jointed garage outside 
the gates of the famous Kennedy 



Compound at Hyannisport. Insucn 
locations they are far more likely 
to come to police attention than 
they would behind the doors of 
their own homes. 

For another, as a practical 
matter, teen-agers, like blacks and 
Puerto Ricans of any age, have 
fewer civil rights than adults, 
particularly when they wear their 
hair long and dress in hippie 
fashion. The police are able to ha- 
rass and roust them in ways they 
would not attempt with conven- 
tionally attired adults. For exam- 
ple, as one angy staff member of an 
underground paper pointed out, how 
many adults are ever stopped for 
what the police describe as a 
"routine check" of driver's li- 
cense and automobile registration 
that often marks the beginning of 
a marijuana arrest? 



Some observers tjelieve that po- 
lice zeal in seeking out marijuana 
offenders in proportional to their 
dislike of the life style it exem- 
plifies, which is often associated 
with antiwar and civil rights pro- 
tests, loud rock music, sexual 
freeoom and what is descril)ed as 
a disrespect for law and order, 
rather than to the seriousness of 
the act itself. 

Juvenile court proceedings, al- 
:hough established in an attempt 
to protect the young, have turned 
out, in the view of many critics, 
to have often had the opposite ef- 
fect, often denying defendants the 
right of counsel and other safe- 
guards of due process. To avoid 
public trials and the possibility, 
however remote, of a jail sen- 
tence, parents often in effect plead 
their children guilty and accept 
probation, as occurred in the case 



of the Kennedy and Shriver young- 
sters. 

This script has by now become 
dismally familiar. The youngster 
gets a haircut, changes to his only 
suit of square clothes, looking as 
frail and naive as young Shriver 
for example, and he and his par- 
ents then face the television ca- 
meras to ask for understanding and 
to promise to try "to do some- 
thing" about the drug menace. 



After his son's second arrest, 
Governor Cahill decided to do 
something by asking the New Jer- 
sey Legislature to consider re- 
ducing the penalties for mari- 
juana offenses. More than half 
the states and the Federal Govern- 
ment have already done so, or like 
New York, are studying the ques- 
tion. The trend has been to lighten 
penalties for users and first of- 
fenders while often increasing 
them for sellers. The Ameri- 
can Medical and Bar Associations 
have urged this more flexible ap- 
proach to the problem, and the 
Department of Health, Educatioi 
and Welfare has belatedly under- 
taken research into marijuana': 
long-term effects. 



Millions of Users 
Users of marijuana, young and 
old - their number in this coun- 
try has been authoritatively es- 
timated at anywhere from 20 mil- 
lion to 40 million - as well as 
many psychiatrists, lawyers, and 
other professionals, find these 
complications droll, not to say ir- 
rational. Canabis sativa, fjrom 
which both marijuana and hashish 
are derived has been in use at 
least since 2737 B.C. the date 
of a Chinese medical guide in 
which is is mentioned. Mari-

juana and hashish have l)een the 
subject of several studies in mo- 
dern times. 

It has not been established that 
these substances are physically 
or psychically damaging. Indeed, 
until 1937 when its use was for- 
bidden by Federal Law, marijuana 



was listed in the United States 
Pharmacopoeia and was pre- 
scribed l^ Physicians for such 
complaints as asthma, migraine 
headaches and delirium tremens.

Six Year Dispute 



Professor May Sue UMass Over Tenure 



At the recommendation of the Trustee Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policies, the University Trustees voted Monday, to sus- 
tain the Administration's decision to dismiss Mrs. Aino Jarvesoo, in- 
structor in the School of Home Economics. The vote ended repeated 
attempts to solve the five-year old dispute on campus, and it now ap- 
pears that the defendant will take the case to court.

is supoorted by the l.I million 
member National Education As- 
sociation, who will provide the le- 
gal counsel and assume the legal 
expenses. 

In June 1964, Mrs. Jarvesoo was 
invited to the former Dean Nied- 
erpruem. School of Home Eco- 
nomics, to a conference to discuss 
her fall semester teaching as- 
signments. Instead, the Dean pro- 
duced a letter of resignation as of 
August 31, 1964. and asked Mrs. 
Jarvesoo to sign it. Mrs. Jarvesoo 
asked for the reasons for this ac- 
tion and when no reasons were 
given, she refused to sign on the 
letter. 



In August 1964, Mrs. Jarvesoo 
was notified that Dean Nieder- 
pruem had recommended the ter- 
mination of her co-'ract, as of 
August 31, 1965. This recom- 
mendation was duly approved by 
their Provost Tippo and Presi- 
dent Lederle. 

The legality of the University 
action has since been disputed by 
Mrs. Jarvesoo and has been sup- 
ported by the Faculty Senate Te- 
nure and Grievance Commitee, a 
local Chapter of the AAUP, the 
National AAUP and the National 
Education Association. During the 
six years of the dispute, the Uni- 
versity has adamantly refused to

give any reasons for the dismis- 
sal, according to Mrs. Jarvesoo. 
The Administration has denied the 
rudiments of due process, and had 
successfully evaded all requests 
for a hearing before the Board of 
Trustees, the defendent has char- 
ged. 

In 1961, after her 3-year statu- 
tory probationary period, which 
she completed "highly satisfac- 
torily," according to the Dean, 
Mrs. Jarvesoo was recommended 
for a re- appointment with tenure. 
Tenure was denied by President 
Lederle on the grounds that her 
husl)and was already in a tenured 
position on the University staff. 

In accepting further re-a(^int- 
ment without formal tenure, Mrs. 
Jarvesoo was assured by Provost 
Woodside that her contract could 
not be terminated arbitrarily and 
without adequate cause. Accord- 
ing to the Trustees* tenure rules,

School 
May Lose 
U.S.Funds 



Dean Lamar Soutter of the Sch- 
ool of Medicine at Worcester told 
the UMass Board of Trustees 
that the financing of the planned 
teaching hospital is in doubt. 



Dean Souter said that state fu- 
nding of the hospital was contin- 
nt on the school's receiving a 
16.5 million grant from the De- 
partment of Health, Education and 
Welfare. 



Although the grant has t)een ap- 
proved, the school was notified that 
HEW will no longer fund teaching 
hospitals. 

He said that 18 other teaching 
hospitals had been promised more 
than $250 million that is no long- 
er available. 

He noted that there is a fund to 
which UMass and the other hos- 
pitals may turn, but that fund has 
only $15 million compared lo a 
combined need of more than a 
quarter of a billion dollars. 

He informed the board that med- 
ical schools are attempting to put a 
measure through Congress to ap- 
propriate $260 million for teaching 
hospitals, but warned that Presi- 
dent Nixon may veto it. If the 
veto is overri'iden, Soutter said 
that the President can restrain 
the Bureau of tue Budget from re- 
leasing the money. 

UMass President Robert Wood 
expressed optimism that there 
would be a change in federal pol- 
icy and promised a further report 
to the trustees at their '-jptcniber 
meeting.

Summer Statesman 
The Summer Snafu 

It certainly has been quite a summer, to quote a former editor of 
this austere jJUbUcation. Usually a UMass summer thunders with in- 
action on the part of administrators and students alike. And though 
summer 1970 wasn't exactly breathtaking, it did at least cause your 
stomach to grab once in a while. 

It's regrettable that the student tax issue had to be so bitter. We 
know for a fact that many students and administrators involved wanted 
nothing more to do this summer than play frisbee in a parking lot. 
Now that the tax has been sort of resolved (UMass problems are never 
completely resolved) perhaps things that have been pending can be 

done. 

Seriously though, the tax controversy has generally cast a pall over 
thse involved. It is just a good thing that all the snafus involved oc- 
curred in the summer. For summer snafus are more easily overlooked 
than fall snafus, as snafus go. 

In Ught of what is an obviously bored and somewhat beleagured SS 
staff, we offer some advice for the harried administrative executives, 
and equally harried student leaders. 

We suggest that the past summer's experiences express upon the 
principals the crucial need for both sides to in the future deal with 
problems in an adult and trusting manner. 

We propose that all involved perhaps go on a canoe trip or even 
better settle back with a good book and a tall glass of milk and con- 
template things. 
We here can't express the problem more strongly. In fact, we are 

trying to just fill this space.

WASHINGTON - There has been a lot of talk about news management in the government these days, 
but if you go through history you can find that every presidential administration tried to manage the

SECRETARY: Not to my know- 
ledge, gentlemen. But I'll check 
it out just to make sure. 



QUESTION: Mr. Secretary, 
didn't the President in his speech 
yesterday indicate he intended to 
manage the news? 

SECRETARY: In what way? 

QU EST ION : He said, ' 'The world 
wiU note, nor long remember, 
what we say here." It seems to 
me in the phrase he was intimi- 
dating the newspapermen who were 
there. 

SECRETARY: I don't think you 
have to interpret the speech in 
that manner. The President's re- 
marks, written on an envelope, 
were off the cuff, and he felt 
thore was no reason to be quoted. 
fisi official version of his speech 
will be made available to the press 
in due time, as soon as the Pre- 
sident has a chance to go over it 
again.

Mary A. Maher, Dean of the 
School of Nursing at UMass since 
1953 has informed the Board of 
Trustees oi her decision to retire 
in October of this year. 

The School of Nursing at the 
University was established in May 

1953 *and Miss Maher was ap- 
point'ec he School's first Dean. 
During her 17 years in office the 
School of Nursing has grown from 
tour faculty and 12 students in 

1954 to 37 faculty and 325 stud- 
ents this year. In that Ume, 331 
students have been awarded Bach- 
elor's degrees in Nursing. 

The School's undergraduate pro- 
gram was accredited by the Na- 
tional League for Nursing in June, 
1960. In September, 1966, a gra- 
duate program in nursing was ini- 
tiated. This four- semester pro- 
gram which leads to a master's 
degree in nursing administration 
is designed to prepare experien- 
ced gr^uate nurses for positions 
as administrators, teachers, and 
clinical specialists. Three gra-

Some Students Denied Loans After Protests 



HARRISBURG, Pa., Relatively 
few institutions of higher education 
tloo throughout the nation have 
iBiked at executing an agree- 
ment with the Pennsylvania Higher 
Education Assistance Agency 
to report to it the names of stu- 
dents expelled or convicted as 
campus rioters. 

Under a new state law, the 
scholarship agency is authorized 
to deny state scholarship awards 
or state-guaranteed loans to Pen- 
nsylvania students found guilty of 
misconduct after Oct. 29, 1969. 

Misconduct is defined as ex- 
pulsion, dismissal or denial of 
enrollment for refusal to obey a 
lawful regulation of order of the 
institution or conviction for any 
criminal offense constituting a 
misdemeanor. 

The provision was submitted in 
June, 1969, by a Chester County 
housewife. Representative Patri- 
cia Crawford, a Republican, as a 
rider to a bill intended to broad- 
en eligibility for scholarships and 



redefine the terms. The penalty 
clause was adopted on a vote of 
174 to 19 after lively debate that 
reflected the anger and frustra- 
tion of many legislators over stu- 
dent unrest at many compuses. 
23 Balk at Terms 

To m"aintain its status as an 
"approved institution" in the 
Pennsylvania student financial aid 
program, an institution must agree 
to provide the agency with the 
name, address and pertinent facts 
relating to a student's misconduct. 

Signed agreements have l)een 
submitted by about 1,800 institu- 
tions. Twenty- three have notified 
the agency they will not sign it. 
Only one of these— Bryn Mawr 
College— is situated in Pennsyl- 
vania. 

The agency has entered into 
amended agreements with Haver- 
ford, Swarthmore, Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology and Duke, 
under which these schools will se- 
cure permission from the scholar- 
ship or loan guarantee recipients 



to report their criminal convic- 
tion or expulsion. 

The American Civil Liberties 
Union has announced it is con- 
sidering the filing of a court test 
of the requirement. 

In addition to Bryn Mawr, the 
other institutions that have re- 
fused to sign the agreement are 
American Academy of Dramatic 
Arts, Bennington,. Clark, Dart- 
mouth, Ck)ddard, Kansas State, 
Manchester Community, Manka- 
to State, Mannes College of Mu- 
sic, Marlboro, Paterson State, 
Radcliffe^ Stanford, Thornton, Ju- 
nior, California, Connecticut, 
-jdinburgh in Scotland, Mississip- 
pi, North Dakota, Alberta, Yale 
and Exeter in England. 

A number of these have had 
few or no scholarship and/or loan 
guarantee recipients enrolled. 

The cases of 10 other institu- 
tions are pending because of ques- 
tions they raised or conditions they 
attached to agreements that are 
being studied by the agency's le- 



gal counsel. These are Cornell, 
Princeton, Purdue, Trinity. Cin- 
cinnati, Iowa, Rhode Island, Wash- 
ington, Wheaton and Wichita State. 
Response to Warning 

In the first week of July, the 
agency sent notices to 945 scholar- 
ship applicants and 171 loan guar- 
antee applicants that they were in- 
eligible because their schools had 
not signed an agreement. In ad- 
dition, about 1,000 students who 
would normally have received loan 
guarantee renewal applications 
were informed they were ineligi- 
ble for the same reason. 

These students were enrolled at 
319 institutions of higher educa- 
tion throughout the country. The 
institutions were sent lists of stu- 
dents at their schools affected by 
their failure to sign the agree- 
ment. 

These mailings produced a 
flurry of signed agreements and 
inquiries from schools that said 
they had never heard of the agree- 



ment. The agency mailed out the 
agreement in March and later sent 
a follow-up letter to all those who 
had not signed. 

As of July 31 the <.^ency had 
received agreements from about 
250 more schools since the early 
July mailings of ineligibility no- 
tices. Agreements are continuing 
to trickle in. Receipt of agree- 
ments since July 1, an agency 
spokesman said, has reduced the 
num.ber of affected scholarship and 
loan applicants to alx)ut half the 
July 1 figure. 

There are about 500 institutions 
approved for the loan program 
only, that have not submitted 
agreements. Most of these are 
junior colleges, hospital schools 
of nursing and business, trade or 
techinical schools, and are situa- 
ted substantial distances from 
Pennsylvania.

Columbia Point Campus Lagoon Problem Solved 




UMass officials and Columbia Point residents reached an agreement 
Monday, temporarily ending the six week dispute over the use of a 

lagoon. 

The controversy had been going on since UMass began trying to fill 
in the lagoon for construction of its Boston campus. Area residents 
want the site to be used for a community recreation center. 

The Columbia Point Action CoaUtion has been working on develop- 
ing the lagoon as a marina, park, store and restaurant center for 
several months. The swamp is in the northeast section of the proposed 

new campus. ^ » i,^ 

Monday a group of residents,mostly housewives and mothers, parkea 
four cars on an access road next to Boston College High School and 
blocked construction trucks from entering the University's building area. 

The blockade ended two hours later after UMass-Boston vice-chan- 
ceUor Roy Hamilton signed an agreement calling for joint cooperation 
between the University and the resident's group. 

Hamilton, who spent 20 minutes talking with the group's attorneys, 
William Osborne and Andrew Wolf, said that the agreement would 
have to be approved by the UMass Board of Trustees, which meets 
Dext in Boston in mid September. . 

The entire snafu began in early July when a group of Columbia Point 
mothers formed a human chain which prevented the University's con- 
struction trucks from dumping fill into the proposed recreation area. 

No dumping has taken place since the controversy began, and UMass- 
Bosto n officials hav e said that the delay has set back construction 
time for the entire building project considerably. 

The tenent's group has said that the lagoon is not the entire issue. 
They stress that they want assurance s from UMass that they will be 
allowed to participate in the planning and development of the Univer- 
sity's Boston campus, since they say that any decisions involving 
Columbia Point affect their lives. 

The University, before the controversy began, offered to plant trees 
and bushes and to build benches for the residents, but the tenent's 
group said at that time this was not enough. 

The tenent's group is recognized by the Boston Housing Authority.

NSA Conference Rejects 
Plan To Shut Down D.C. 



By ALBERT BENSON 
S.S. ReUgion Writer 



Baha'i, an interdenominational, 
world religion, is currently in- 
volved in a recruitment cam- 
paign on campus. The group is 
enlistingmembers at informal fire- 
side chats, during small conver- 
sations, and by casual personal 
encounters. 

The group hopes to obtain fol- 
lowers by preaching a philosophy 
of peace and brotherhood. Am- 
ong its avowed aims are the spir- 
itual re-^nification of the world, 
and the atolitlon of superficial 
barriers txitween men such as 
race, class, and nationality. While 
the group does not advocate for- 
ced abandonment of these barriers, 
it does advocate a gradual self- 
overcoming. 

Included in the principles which 
bind the Baha'is together are: the 
constant struggle to overcome cus- 
toms and traditions which separate 
men, the right of women to have 
equal opportunitie s with men, tlif 
right of all children to have a bas- 
ic education, the recognition tha^ 
reUglon should go hand in hand 
with science, the responslblUty of 
all people to help formulate an 
International lan«ni9««' anrt th*.nh. 



ligation of all people to work for 
an abolition of wealth and poverty. 

Founded in 1844 by a young man 
who called himself Bab, or the 
gate, the group has grown and at- 
tracted followers despite continued 
persecutions. After Bab announced 
that a mac would come who would 
usher in an age of world peace, he 
and many of his followers were 
killed by the Persian government 
and the Islamic clergy. In 1863 
Baha'u'Uah, the actual founder of 
Baha'i announced that he was the 
man of peace that Bab had spoken 
of. He stated that the institut- 
ions and ideas that separate peo- 
ple would be destroyed. Because 
of his statements Baha'u; 
of his statements Baha'u'Uah was 
forced to flee. In 1892 he died 
in exile. Despite the persecutions 
and adverse conditions, however, 
Baha'i has continued to grow. It 
currently has thousands of mem - 
l)ers of every race, nationality, 
and religion.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - After 
three hours of debate, the 23rd 
annual National Student Assoc- 
iation Congress voted down 150- 
134 a proposal calling for a 
nonviolent paralyzing of Wash- 
ington, D.C. on May 1 If the 
Vietnam war is not ended by 
that time. 

It was a sharp blow to the 
radical left, who fought for the 
strategy brought to the con- 
vention by Rennle Davis, a Chi- 
cago 7 defendant, and Mike Ler- 
ner, a defendant in the Seattle 
8 conspiracy case. 

Before they went down to de- 
feat, the left wing of the student 
delegates managed a 140-140 tie 
but could not hold their votes 
on the second tally. Oppos- 
ition developed among blacks, 
Mexican-Americans and more 
moderate students. 

Myron Chenault, a black stu- 
dent from Manchester, Inc., 
College, said the night before he 
had started to speak out ag- 



ainst the proposal but Uavis 
asked him not to because "ii 
the blacks are against It, It 
win give some wishy-washy 
whites" a reason for backing 
out. Chenault claimed that the 
proponents of the measure wan- 
ted to get "stupid whites to 
Washington and get their heads 
busted and then they'd be com- 
mitted." 

Davis earlier in the week had 
called for nonviolent national 
civil disobedience l)eginnlng in 
the fall and coming to a cli- 
max with students descending 
on Washington May 1 and shut- 
ting down the Federal govern- 
ment by blocking roads, brid- 
ges and buildings and preventing 
Federal workers from reaching 
their jobs. 

Although speaking against the 
motion, Peter Denton of Ann 
Arbor, Mich, called for guerr- 
illa warfare instead, shouting: 
"We can win It." 

On the other hand, Darlo Ya- 



barro of Yakima, Wash. Coll- 
ege said any attempt to shut 
down the Federal government 
would cause the "poor people 
to suffer." 

Before the delegates acted on 
the main resolution, three am- 
endments were voted down. Two 
would have watered down the 
main proposal and eliminated 
reference to shutting down 
Washington. 

The third amendment that was 
rejected called for the NSA 
to "take the philosophical and 
political position actively sup- 
porting and coordinating student 
activities directed toward the 
overthrow of the existing go- 
vernmental system in the Un- 
ited States." 

The author, John Lindsay of 
St. Cloud, Minn. State College, 
said he knew It would be de- 
feated but offered it as a move 
to make the main resolution 
more acceptable to the dele- 
gates.

Entry Permitted 
IWidow of Duboi 

The Department of Justice has reversed itself and notiiied the 
widow of W.E.B. DuBois that she may visit the Umted States 

"^The*°move was disclosed in a letter from the department to 
DrC Eric Lincoln, the president of the board of the Black 
Academy of Arts and Letters, which is sponsormg the visit, ur. 
Lincoln had written the department last month to protest its or- 
iginal denial of a visa to Mrs. Shirley Gr^m DuBois. 
The denial was based on Mrs. DuBois* alleged affiliations 

with Community organizations. , .^ r i^.^nr^r. 

In a letter received by Dr. Lincoln last week, the Immigration 
and Naturalization Service of the Justice Department said: to 
light of the reason for which Mrs. DuBois now wishes to visit 
the United States, this service has concurred m the (Department 
of State's) recommendation." „.„*„„„„ 

The letter was signed by Jame s F. Greene, an associate com- 
missioner of the immigration service. ,^ , ^„ 

Dr DuBois, who died in Ghana at the age of 95, was a co- 
founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Col- 
ored People He also wrote a number of books, of which The 
Souls of Black Folk" is now widely used in black studies programs. 
At the age of 93 and while living in Ghana, Dr. DuBois announced 
that he had joined the Communist party. 

Mrs DuBois, who was born in New York, is a citizen of Ghana 
and live in Cairo. In her original visa application she said she 
wanted to return to the United States to speak to students at Fisk 
University, a black college in Nashville, Tenn. , , ^ ^ 

Mr. Greene wrote that when she first applied ''she was found to 
be inadmissable to this country t^ ^n American consular official 
of the Department of State because she had been affUiated with 
numerous Communist organizations." 

"Although there is a provision of law whereby the temporary 
admission of inadmissable aliens may be authorized," he said, "it 
was decided that the purpose of Mrs. DuBois' visit did not outweigh 
from a national-interests view the factors which compelled the 

initial denial of her visa." x x .. ox . rv. * ♦ 

Initial reports had indicated however, that the State Department 
had found no reason to deny her request and that it had been re- 
jected on the basis of a Department of Justice decision. 

Dr. Lincoln wrote Attorney General John N. Mitchell asking 
for a reconsideration of the decision. "Dr. W.E.B, DuBois 
remains an important symbol of scholarship and achievement for 
thousands of black youth," he said in part. 

Dr Lincoln, a professor at Union Theological Seminary, also 
said he was inviting Mrs. DuBois to New York on behalf of the 
Black Academy of Arts and Letters. 

The academy next month will enroll three well-known black 
Americans including Dr. DuBois into its newly created Hall of 
Fame. The others to be enrolled are Carter G. Woodson, a his- 
torian, and Henry 0. Tanner, an artist. « , , 

Now 17 months old, the academy was founded by 50 wack schol- 
ars, artists and authors. 

The letter from the Immigration and NaturalizaUon Service said 
Mrs. DuBois now wished to come here to participate in the cere- 
monies honoring her husband "and also to attend to personal 
business."

which unnecessarily complicate I- 
taUan criticism. But in France, 
England, and The United States, 
truly fanatical praise was show-

over fifty awards in nine countries 
including an Oscar as best foreign 



has been written about the film 
that it would be impossible for 
me even to mention all of the 
themes. It is the story of an 
itinerant Italian strong man who 
wanders about the Italian coun- 
tryside with his servant perform- 
ing in small towns. The episodic 
plot is wound up and given mean- 
ing by one of the most intensely 
beautiful cinematic endings. Cri- 
tics often hail the filin as a bril- 
liant example of neo - realism ;oth- 



successful first film, the WHITE etta Masina was placed alongside 



film. The film played in New ers insist it is a symbolic spiri 
York for over three years, Giul 



SHEK, Fellini first began to rec 
eive attention for his I VITEL- 
LONI (The Spivs), a sensitive 
study ofsmalltown aimless youths, 
the Italian analotues to the Beat 
Generation. Only after this suc- 
cess was he able to convince 
sceptical producers to finance the 
making of his old project, LA 
STRADA. 

Producers were dubious of his 
desire to use his wife, Giuletta 
Masina, as the star. As soon as 
shooting started, whe fell and dis- 
located her ankle and the film 
had to be held up for three months. 
Anthony Quinn, committed to mak- 
ing another film at the time, AT- 
TILA, was frequently absent from 
the set, and often shooting had to 
begin a daybreak so that Quinn 
could rush off to the other set. 
This proved to be a fortunate 
circumstance, providing the film 
with its eerily grayish light and

So much interpretive material

Both positions are supportable 
but neither seems satisfactory. 
The poetic quality, which makes 
the film so unforgettable, seems 
unapproachable by the intellect. 
And, like much great poetry, the 
film speaks of man's existential 
loneliness in a language all its 
own.

To Pow Wow Here 

The first annual meeting of the newly established Association for 
Consumer Research will be held at the Murray D. Lincoln Campus 
Center Aug. 28 to 30. The host for the conference is the UMass School 
of Business Administration. 

The Association for Consumer Research was established to provide a 
forum for the exchange of ideas between those engaged in ccusumer 
research in academic disciplines, in government and In private bus- 
iness. The association hopes to stimulate research focusing on a t)et- 
ter understanding of consumer motivation and t)ehavior, and to dis- 
seminate research findings through professional seminars, con'erences 
and publications. 

Conference sessions will cover such topics as mathematical models 
in consumer research, research on marketing stimuli, research on 
mediating processes, multi-dimensional scaling, market performance 
in the central city aind others. Speakers will be drawn from govern- 
ment, l)usiness and universities. 

The chairman of the conference arrangements committee is Meen- 
akshisunder Venkatesan, associate professor of marketing at the 
University of Massachusetts School of Business Administration.

Lagoon Solution Clears Way For Campus Construction 



•*4^ 



The resolution of the Great 
Lagoon Snafu this week cleared 
the way for construction to be- 
gin in full for the first phase 
of the University's $355 million 
Columbia Point campus in Bos- 
ton. 

The master plan, which en- 
compasses a 90-acre site at 
Columbia Point, calls for com- 
pletion of fourteen major build- 
ings ty 1980. They include: a 
main Library, six "colleges," 
a Science Center, a Fine Arts 
Center, an Administration 
Building, a Field House and 
Physical Education facility, a 
Student Activity Center, and a 
Central Service building. These 
^cilities will accommoidate the 
university's planned enrollment 
of 15,000 students by the end of 
the decade. Parking for 6,0fX) 
cars will be provided in decks 
under the buildines. All struc- 
tures will be interrelated with 
i both vertical and horizontal cir- 
culation systems to form a sin- 
gle, closely knit urban complex. 
Land- use relationships for 
the 14 structures are based on 
the University's academic plan. 
Ttiis plan calls for each of the 
six "colleges" to provide in- 
structional facilities for 2,500 
students. WhUe the six "col- 
leges" could be totally autono- 
mous, the academic plan calls 
for significant student inter- 
action among them. 

The six "colleges" surround 
a central core containing the 
Library, Science Center, and 
Administration Building. The 
"colleges" are the primary 
units where the students will 
spend most of their time. Con- 
sequently, the academic pro- 
gram calls for study, library, 
and otber facilities in

Building, Student Activity Cen- 
ter, and the Science Center form 
the edges of the university's 
main plaza. The open space 
created is equivalent to the 
"malls" or "yards" found in 
older, traditional campuses. 
The pedestrian circulation sys- 
tem, a proposed transit line, and 
the buildings forming the main 
plaza will make the area a cen- 
ter of campus activity. 

Communications, electrical 
service, and heating and cooling 
mediums will be distributed in a 



utility passage, which is an in- 
tegral part of the building com- 
plex. From this main distri- 
iHition system, connections will 
be made to various mechanical 
and service areas serving the 
individual buildings. 

The one-way, loop road sys- 
tem proposed in the master 
plan will provide auto access 
to the various parking decks on 
the campus. This system will 
connect with Morrissey Boule- 
vard at an interchange to be de- 
signed and iNiilt by the Metro- 



politan District Commission. 
The one-way loop will reduce 
congestion, distribute traffic 
evenly, and cut road construc- 
tion costs by more than 50%. 
The relationship of the main 
entrance road and the main 
plaza in front of the Library 
will establish an overall sense 
of arrival at the university for 
visitors. On approaching the 
Library by car, a person will 
proceed into the parking levels, 
aware of the presence of the 
plaza above. Approximately

the individual "colleges" wiU

destrian movement systems 
provided in the master plan are: 
an open circulation system, a 
closed circulation system, and 
vertical links that connect the 
closed circulation system. Also 
included is a promenade along 
the seashore, which will link 
the plan's peripheral open spac- 
es to the "colleges." 

The open pedestrian circula- 
tion level is the principal level 
for public and student activity. 
The proposed skybus or transit 
link would serve the campus at 
this level, in a position at the 
plaza end of the campus. 

A closed pedestrian system, 
located above the open one, will 
connect the main instructional 
floors of the "colleges." 
Science Center, Fine Arts Cen- 
ter, and Physical Education 
Building. This will provide an 
enclosed, weather-protected 
way of getting from building to 
building. Although additional 
instructional facilities will be 
located above and below the en- 
closed circulation system, the 
major classroom facilities 
which serve other "colleges" 
will be concentrated on this 
level. 

The master plan also pro- 
poses a promenade along the 
site's shore to provide for un- 
interrupted views across Bos- 
ton Harbor. This walk will also 
contain places for sitting, read- 
ing, study, or conversation. It 
is hoped that the promenade will 
also be used by people not con- 
nected with the university, who 
might enjoy a walk along more

And In Worcester 



Buildings Sprout 



Gtovernor Sargent yesterday ok'd $56.1 million 
dollars in building contracts for construction of 
the first phase of the UMass Medical School in 
Worcester. 

The main structure in the initial phase of con- 
struction will be a 10 story medical school-science 
building, which will contain 1150 rooms, including 
a library, three laboratories, and a considerable 
amount of office space. 

A power plant for the campus will also be con- 
structed from the monies approved by the Gover- 
nor. 

But still to be financed Is the school's teaching 
hospital. This structure was originally slated 
to be funded by a Department of Health, Educa- 
tion and Welfare grant, but Medical School Dean 
Lamar Soutter told the Board of Trustees that 
the department would no longer be funding such 

projects. ^ ^^ 

The University will attempt to get the needed 
funds from other federal sources before turning 
to the State, according to Soutter. 

The Medical School's first class of 16 will 
begin classes in mid -September, and will be 
housed in temporary faciUties until the permanent 
site opens in 1973. 

According to Soutter, the school received thou- 
sands of appUcations for the 16 iniUal spots in the 
first class, and says the school will take a class 
of 100 when the permanent facilities first open in 
three years. •

ings which will house the medical school.

STATESMAN 

Off Statesman 



The three months of publication for this year's Summer Statesman 
will come to an end with this issue. And while the experience hasn't 
been too exciting, it has been a summer that has lent to ask certain 
questions which are right now without answers. And so we leave you 
with some questions which may pique your mind during these few weeks 
left before the beginning of the fall semsster. 



- Who is going to fill the void that will be left by the year -long 
sabbatical beginning this fall of Acting Dean of Arts and Sciences Sey- 
mour Shapiro, not only as a dean, but also as one of the most acces- 
sible and concerned faculty members on campus? 



- How many psychiatrists will be needed in the fall to calm the 
tense overcowded masses in the ridiculously overcrowded dormitories? 



- How are students going to react to the new Campus Center in the 
fall, a buikiii.s chat they have paid for, for years and a building that 
has earned many a comment this summer? 



- What will be the reaction of students to the Board of Trustees 
after the board threatened the taxation powers of the student senate and 
tossed a bone to students wishing to participate in the fall elections? 



- What will he the response of certain faculty members who did all 
they could to thwart grading proposals during the strike when asked 
for leave by students wishing to participate in the fall elections? 



With these few morsels to chew on for a few weeks, the time has 
come for the SS editors to bid leave. We would like to take this oppor- 
tunity to thank some of the people who made ths SS what it was ( a twice 
weekly se^ni-newspaper). Some of these include the RSO crew, Fred 
p-chinger. Art Buchwald, Herb Block, Mr. Daniel M.Melley, Mr. Rich- 
aid Shanor, Oswald "The Tip" Tippo, a great bunch of guys known as 
the UMass Board of Trustees, Mrs. Avis, A.B. Dick, Glen "Hit 'em 
Where They Ain't" Elters, Terry, Stanley and the entire Fine Arts 
Council cadre, D.P. and AFO, our pudgy printers, Freddy and the 
Dreamers, Wimpy, and the entire staff of the Sunday New York Times,

Snafu Cited 



To the Editor: 

In the August 11 issue of the 
Statesman, the following state- 
ment appears: 

"The Trustees reduced .... and 
the requirement in Rhetoric to one 
course, either Rhetoric 100 or 
Rhetoric 110." 

This statement is in error. The 
Trustees actually voted as fol- 
lows: 

"TTiat the present core require- 
ment B be changed to read: 



B. An introduction to the theory 
and practice of writing and speak- 
ing, and to the study of commu- 
nication in our society by the suc- 
cessful completion of two courses 
in Rhetoric one of which must be 
Rhetoric 100 or Rhetoric 110." 

This is consistent with the re- 
commendations of the Faculty Se- 
nate.

Tahiti Women's Lib 



TAHITI- -Women's liberation is 
working in Tahiti as well as, or 
better than, any place in the world. 
I discovered this when I visited 
the beautiful island of Bora Bora 
which inspired James Michener's 
"Tales of the South Pacific." We 
stayed at the Hotel Bora Bora 
where, instead of hotel rooms, 
each couple has its own grass- 
covered hut overlooking the cry- 
stal-clear fish- happy lagoon. 



One of the first things I no- 
ticed was that there were only 
women working in the hotel, at 
the desk or the bn, as cham- 
bermaids or waitresses. 



One morning I made a discreet 
inquiry as to where all the men 
OQ Bora Bora were. 



A Frenchman who lives on the 
island said. "They're prol)ably 
still in their huts, sleeping. 
They're very tired celebrating the 
14th of July which, as you Imow. 
has been going on for 10 days.'' 



"But don't they have to go to 
work?" 



"No, monsieur. The tradition 
of the islands is that only the wo- 
men work." 



"What do the men do?" 



"But if the women work, what 
do the men use for money?" 



"The women give 
money they make."

"But that's wonderful," I saicj. 
"This is a country of true wo- 
men's liberation." 



"Not really. You must under- 
stand that the Tahitian man is not 
as ambitious as the American. 
Many, many years ago, Tahitian 
men discovered that there wasn't 
anything they could do that their 
women couldn't do better. Once 
they made this discovery, they 
decided it was stupid to compete 
with them."

CourtShoot-OutSeenRadicalMilestone 



At first, the Uoody escape at- 
tempt at the Marin County Court- 
house seemed like a daring, mo- 
vieland- style prison break with no 
more political significance than a 
Bogart film. 

But in the ten days since a judge, 
two black San Quentin prisoners 
and an accomplice were killed, the 
shoot-out at San Raf£iel has taken 
on the proportions of a major 
political and social development. 

Pieces of an intriguing mosaic 
have started to emerge: Jonathan 
Jackson, the young gun- bearer of 
the incident, was the br' <;her of a 
man awaiting trial with two others 
for killing a pi ison guard; Ange- 
la Davis, charged with murder, 
had l)een working closely with 17- 
year-old Jonathan in defense of 
the three men, known as the Sole- 
dad brothers; one of the would-l)e 



escapees shouted during the break, 
"We are revolutionaries," Black 
Panther leader Huey Newton has 
said that young Jackson, shot down 
in the melee, should have and 
would have been my successor." 

To the radical movement, the 
event is fast becoming a revo- 
lutionary milestone. Movement 
theorist Tom Hayden, one of the 
Chicago Eight called the incident 
"a new stage of combat against 
oppression." Writing in the Ber- 
keley Tribe a radical weekly, Hay- 
den said, "these were the first 
prisoners of war to attempt li- 
berating themselves and others 
with guns in hand, consciously de- 
ciding that death in struggle is 
better than life in solitary." 

To non- radicals, the incident had 
chilling implications. There was 
the real fear that courthouses 



could become the battlegrounds for 
a form of guerrilla warfare aim- 
ed at freeing black or white "po- 
litical prisoners." 

The idea of prison as the care- 
taker of an oppressive system has 
l)een a keystone of radical thought. 
One of the original ten demands 
of the Black Rmther Party was 
the immediate release of all black 
prisoners. 

Prisoners in California have 
long been a hotl)ed of racial an- 
tagonism among whites, blacks and 
Mexican- Americans, with tensions 
often exploding in bloody conflict. 
The prisons have also been re- 
cruiting grounds for militancy, 
the most notable example bemg 
Eldridge Cleaver. 

Last January, a white guard 
fired into a crowd of brawling 
whites and blacks in a courtyard 



at Soledad Prison in Monterey 
county. The guard wounded a 
white prisoner, but killed three 
blacks. He fired no warning shot. 

The guard was cleared by a grand 
jury, which ruled justifiable ho- 
mocide. A few days later, a white 
guard was beaten, thrown off a 
third tier and killed. Three black 
inmates, one of them George Jack- 
son, brother of Jonathan, were 
charged with murder. 

Word reached Newton, then an 
inmate in the California Men's 
Facility at San Luis Obispo, New- 
ton was convinced that Jackson 
and the others had l)een selected 
because of their militancy. Jack- 
son had l)een in prison for ten 
years on a second degree rob- 
l)ery conviction. 

Newton contacted his lawyer, 
Fay Stender of Berkeley, who took 



An Outside View of the University 



(Ed. Note - The following was an editorial in the Northampton Gazette 
of Thursday, August 12, 1970. It is a good example of the regard college 
students are held in the outside community (animals) and also a good 
example of the impossibility of university students getting fair news 
coverage.) 

Oh, the problems of running or planning a college and its develop- 
ment! 

The difficulties of the job were made abundantly clear in two separ- 
ate meetings that were held at the University of Massachusetts si- 
multaneously on Monday. 

First there was the Board of Trustees of UMass discussing many 
problems, including the question of housing for married students and 
giving a week off from classes for politicking in November. 

The university officials were taken to task by some married student 
spokesmen for having too expensive housing. He said that the univer- 
sity already owned the land and didn't have to pay taxes and wasn't 
seeking a profit so there was no reason it should be charging prices 
close to the rentals charged by private apartment developers. 

There was not much rebuttal, but university people have said in the 
past that the apartments are of a modular construction, which is the 
cheapest that is available today. 

Certain costs, including site preparation, water and sewer facil- 
ities, are high no matter whether they are borne by a non-profit or- 
ganization such as the university or by a profit-making developer. 

They have to be paid and the cost has to be reflected in the ren- 
tals. 

There have been recurring reports that what has been recommended 
is the establishment of trailer parks with mobile homes for the stu- 
dents to live in. 

But the town of Amherst does not permit trailer parks and special 
permits are needed even for a single trailer. Few of those have been 
granted in recent years. 

So the housing is mor e expensive than the students wanted and this 
is too bad. But the university did bow to requests that it provide such 



housing and it provided the type of housing it felt was called for. 

This, of course, is nothing new for the university people. They were 
l)erated for the type of dormitory facilities they provided, particularly 
the high rises in the Southwest Complex. But the planning for such 
dormitories was done at a time when there was grave need for space 
and was done at least in answer to the requirements and desires of 
those in school at the time. 

By the time the dorms were completed the students who had made 
suggestions were gone and new students wanted something else. 

And if construction is done to adhere to desires of todays' UMass 
students, then by the time the work is completed and the facilities are 
in use there will he new students who may find the facilities not what 
the y want and will then spend time l)erating the authorities for not 
thinking of the student in their planning. 

At the same time all this was going on, at a meeting of the Society for 
CoUege and University Planners, one official pointed out that author- 
ities are perpetually working on a time-lag basis. The best that can 
be expected he said, is to try to take all viewpoints and work to ful- 
fill as many of the desires as possible and try to reconcile those that 
can't be accomodated. 

And finally, one should mention the howl of protest that went up when 
the UMass trustees refused to grant a week off from classes for po- 
litical activity the week before the national elections in November. 
Instead they let it be a matter of agreement between student and pro- 
fessor on taking time off and making up time that was taken off. 

A student representative complained that this left the student at the 
mercy of the professor. 

It is interesting to note that he did not feel that there was anything 
amiss in leaving the entire university, students, professors and ser- 
vice personnel at the mercy of students who would decide to close the 
school down to take a week off. 

Running a university has to be a little bit like running a zoo where 
the animals are never wrong even when they are. 



the case immediately set in mo- 
tion the building of a political 
cause. 

Meanwhile, members of the 
Jackson family in Pasadena threw 
themselves into his defense. One 
of them was Jonathan, a quiet, stu- 
dious boy with no police record 
who idolized his brother. 

He wrote in an underground high 
school paper last June: "A per- 
son that was close to me once said 
that my life was too wrapped up 
in my brother's case and that I 
wasn't cheerfirl enough for her. 
It's true. I don't laugh very 
much anymore. I have but one 
question to ask . . . What would 
you do if it was your brother?" 

Jackson worked closely with An- 
gela Davis, the controversial Com- 
munist professor at UCLA. On 
Aug. 5, someone identifying her- 
self as Angela Davis purchased a 
12-guage shotgun at a San Fran- 
cisco gun shop - the same gun 
authorities claim that killed Judge 
Harld J. Haley. Three other guns 
used in the incident have been tra- 
ced to purchases in the name of 
Miss Davis. 

Many questions remain to he an- 
swered. What is clear now is that 
the issue of America's prisons 
and their role in the system has 
been thrust to the forefront. And 
as with so many other hidden rea- 
lities this country has f£iced in 
the last decade, it took a violent 
act to do it.

Upon the slimy sea. 

About, about in real and rout 
The death-fires danced at night; 
The water, like a witch's oils, 
Burnt green, and blue and white. 

When Sam Coleridge had his An- 
cient Mariner describe the after- 
math of the murder of the alba- 
tross in 1798, he couldn't have 
had the Massachusetts part of the 
Connecticut River in mind. For, 
it was a pure stream then. 

But witti the success of indus- 
trial technology, America 1970 
makes the words of his Rime ring 
true. Man and his technological 
progress have murdered the al- 
batross, have polluted the nation's 
streams and rivers into a slimy 
sea that dances in the night "like 
a witch's oils, burnt green, and 
blue and white" aad has left us 
with no water to drink. 

Of every waste that is dump- 
ed into the Connecticut River ev- 
eryday, there are several major 
poUutants thkt pose increasing 
dangers to man's health. 

The continuing discharge of raw 
sewage (human waste) is dangerous 



to man's health mainly because of 
the infectious agents that live long 
enough in the water to be trans- 
ported to bathing areas, water sup- 
plies, and fish habitat. These 
infectious agents tend to fall into 
three basic categories. The most 
devastating of these bacteria cause 
principally typhoid fever and chol- 
era. Protozoal infections cause 
sicknesses such as amoebic dysen- 
tery , though along the Connect- 
icut River the only significant in- 
fection of this kind is swimmer's 
itch, a skin disease transported 
by infected water fowl. Incre- 
asingly prevalent have been viral 
infections such as the case of 
infectious hepatitus that struck 
down the Holy Cross football team, 
last fall. Other viral infections 
coming from polluted drinking wa- 
ter would include inflamations of 
body organs (eyes, brain, spinal 
cord, heart, liver) and various 
gastrointestinal upsets. 

An increased number of oil sl- 
icks has also gained much attent- 
ion in recent months. The major 
problem in the Connecticut River, 
though, has been the careless dis- 
charge of oil, either deliberately or 
accidentally, by oil vendors or gas 
station attendants. Other sources 
of oil pollution are motorboats, 
leaking oil storage tanks and oil 
pipelines that threaten groundwat- 
ers. Floating solids also found in 
this category would include waste 
water, street run-off, greases and 
scums. In other parts of the cou- 



By JILL WALLACH 

Special to the Summer Statesman 

ntry the increased oil slicks have 
resulted from development of off- 
shore petroleum resources, the 
breakup of oil tankers, and spills 
from refineries and ships. 

Major damage has also l>een 
done to the normal growth process- 
es of plankton and rooted aquatic 
plants along the bed of the river. 
Excessive phosphorus and nitro- 
gen compounds (bio-stimulants) 
have accelerated the process of 
lake aging (eutriphication) which 
is the seasonal accumulation of 
benthic deposits on the bottoms 
of lakes and reservoirs. These 
benthic deposits - layers of de- 
caying vegetable material - usu- 
ally take centuries to fill in the 
lakes or streams to become sw- 
amps. But due to the accelerated 
discharge of these compounds this 
process is accomplishing in one 
generation what would have taken 
thousands of years in a normal 
aging process. Major sources of 
this damage are the detergents 
(phosphorus compounds) used in 
household cleaning. Fertilized 
agricultural lands, gardens and 
animal feed lots are all sources 
of both nitrates and phosphates. 
Nitrogen compounds can also be 
leached from the refuse accum- 
ulations of such place s as dumps 
and sanitary landfills. 

Some of the greatest destruct- 
ion to animal and plant life in the 
Connecticut River has been caused 
by toxic compounds - toxic metals, 
florides, cyanides, and nitrates. 



These are generally found in suf- 
ficiently low concentrations to be 
of only long range hazard to hu- 
man life. But with other forms 
of life, the hazard is more im- 
mediate. Cyanides, discharged 
from tanneries and the metal -pla- 
ting industries have caused mas- 
sive fish kills afong the Conn- 
ecticut and its tributaries. Other 
chemicals also change the acidity 
or alkalinity of the water to such 
an extent as to make it unfit to 
drink l)ecause of corrosion and 
other difficulties. The leaching of 
dumps and landfills is again a 
source of chemical pollution. 

Waste heat too has l)ecome in- 
creasingly dangerous to aquatic 
life. These temperature changes 
in water courses may be induced 
by altering the environment by 
road building, diverting flows for 
irrigation, or directly adding oi* 
taking away heat. The primary so- 
urce of waste heat has been in- 
dustrial cooling - particularly 
from the electric power industry. 
This waste heat results from the 
cooling of steam used in the gen- 
eration process which utilizes ei- 
ther fossil or nuclear fuels. 

The physical properties of wa- 
ter are tremendously affected by 
temperature changes. For while 
the solubility of solids is signif- 
icantly increased, the solubility of 
dissolved oxygen is decreased. 
Density changes in water bodies 
prevent the natural mixing needed 
to circulate the oxygen and nut- 



rients necessary to the mainten- 
ence of fish life. Algae and other 
aquatic plants are also dependent 
on the temperature for their grow- 
th rates. Radioactivity and the 
use of nuclear energy come under 
this category, too, as a threat to 
clean water because of its use in 
power production. 

Some of the more noticeable ef- 
fects of the alx)ve mentioned pol- 
lutants are direct indications of 
the strength of waste water. 

Suspended solids brought into 
quiet waters such as large lakes, 
create deposits of sludge which 
give off obnoxious gases and de- 
plete the oxygen content as they 
decompose. These solids may also 
blanket the bottoms of streams 
and lakes, thus depriving fish of 
natural food and oxygen. Taste 
and odor are also affected by the 
decaying plant and'animal life found 
in the benthic deposits at the bot- 
toms of lakes and marshes or by 
chemical constitutents such as ph- 
enols. The water's color comes 
from the natural surroundings or 
the presence of waste water (dyes 
from the paper companies often 
make stream water a different 
color every day). Muddy or tur- 
bid waters may he naturally pol- 
luted such as l>y soil erosion, 
or may come from the accelerated 
growths of algae and other plank- 
ton organisms. One of the roost

UMass Publicity Office Offers Some Choice Tidbits 
Arcbitects Honored In CC Trees Bioom in cc 



Some of the country's most dis- 
tinguished architects were in a 
group honored by the UMass re- 
cently in the new Murray D. Lin- 
coln Campus Center. 

The occasion was a reception 
and txiffet given by Amherst Cfhan- 
cellor Oswald Tippo and the Uni- 
versity Board of Trustees for ar- 
chitects who have designed or are 
designing UMass buildings. Tri- 
bute was also paid to those was 
assisted in the University's archi- 
tectural planning. 

Among those honored were Mar- 
cel Breuer and Herbert Beckhard. 
The Breuer and Beckhard firm de- 



signed the Campus Center, an 11- 
story conference, continumg edu- 
cation and student activities faci- 
lity. 

Two consultants who have had a 
leading role in the new look of the 
Amherst campus were honored. 
They are Pietro Belluschi, the 
board's overall consulting archi- 
tect, and Hideo Sasaki, the mas- 
ter planning and site consultant. 
The former is dean emeritus of 
architecture at Massachusetts In- 
stitute of Technology and the latter 
heads the firm of Sasaki, Dawson, 
DeMay Associates. 

The architects for the recent 



Engineering Building East, Drum- 
mey Rosane Anderson, were re- 
presented l^ David Anderson and 
the firm of Goody and Clancy, now 
workinc on the design of the infir- 
mary addition at Amherst, was re- 
presented by John Clancy. 

Barry and Paul Coletti repre- 
sented Coletti Brothers, designers 
of Herter Hall, completed last 
year, and Tobin Hall, now under 
construction. Kevin Roche and 
John Dinkeloo, architects for the 
fine arts center scheduled for con- 
struction start during the coming 
year were both present. 



A four day symposium on "Trees and Forests in an Urbaniziog 
Environment" will be held at the Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center 
at UMass from August 18 to 21. 

The symposium is for urban and suburban planners, landscape 
architects, foresters, and others concerned with managing resources 
and improving urban environments. Participants will review and dis- 
cuss current knowledge on the role and function of trees in areas of 
high population density, and how trees may 'contribute more effectively 
to a quality environment. 



Wagner To Head New Dept. 



Associate Dean Robert W. Wag- 
ner of the University College of 
Arts and Sciences has been named 
acting director of the Office of 
Institutional Studies at Amherst, 
according to Chancellor Oswald 
Tippo. 

The Office of Institutional Stu- 
dies (OIS) is a research agency 
that conducts studies on the Uni- 
versity and on higher education 
institutions in general. It also 
maintains a library of material 
on higher education and serves as 



a clearinghouse of information on 
the University's growth and devel- 
opment. 

Dr. Wagner is a professor of 
mathematics who joined the UMass 
faculty in 1950. He became as- 
sociate dean in 1961. He is a 
graduate of Ohio University with 
M. A. and Ph. D. degrees from 
the University of Michigan. 

He served on the Acuities of 
the University of Wisconsin and 
Ol)erlin College before coming to 
UMass. Dr. Wagner is the author 



01 two books, "Fundamentals of 
Statistics," with J. B. Scarbor- 
ough and "Introductory College 
Mathematics." He is a member 
of Phi Beta Kappa. 

Dr. Wagner directed a number 
of National Science Foundation in- 
stitutes at UMass for high school 
teachers of mathematics and 
science, aided in the formation of 
the UMass Faculty Senate and 
headed an early committee to re- 
vise the curriculum of the Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences. 



Speech Flick 
Previewed 

This Friday evening the Speech Department of the University 
will present the American experimental feature film HALLE- 
LUJAH THE HILLS, directed by Adolfas Mekas. The film will 
be shown at 7:30 p.m. in 104 Thopmson Hall. Admission is 75 
cents, and the public is invited. 

CAPSULE PREVIEW (New York Times 

For this unpretentious exercise in low -budget cinema, made by 
a group of newcomers with little more than a camera, a few reels 
of film, and a lot of imagination, it is the wildest and wittiest com- 
edy of the season. Plotles s and pointless, seemingly without a 
care for structure and cinematic style, it is unfuriatingly uncon- 
ventional and wholly disarming. 

CAPSULE REVIEW (Manchester Guardian) 

Imagine a combination of Huckleberry Finn, " Pull My Daisy," 
the Marx Brothers, and the complete works of Douglas Fairbanks, 
Mary Pickford, and D. W. Griffith, and vrtiat have you got? A 
film which is both deliriously funny and ravishingly lyrical. The 
slapstick is as outrageous as the continuity is non-existent. It is a 
satire on the American way of life, and at the same time a hynm to 
the joys of youth and friendship.

in Brooklyn. And don't think the kids don't know

"Labor unions . . . including civil service and

"Murder -by -me mo is an acceptable crime in

UMasS/ChurchCombine 
To Aid Appalachia 



By ALBERT BENSON 
Asst. Managing Editor 

The University and the Wesley Methodist Church of Amherst are 
currently involved in programs to help improve economic conditions 
in Appalachia. 

At UMass, the School of education sponsored the PhD candidacy of 
Mr. Don Best of Kentucky. "Mr. Best was brought here", according 
to Dr. Dan Jordan, a professor of education at UMass, "to give him 
the opportunity to work with the latest techniques and equipment. We 
feel that with the facilities that we have at the University, we will be 
able to give people from Appalachia a broader teaching base to work 

from." 

The School of Education also sponsored two one day consortiums on 
the problems of teachng in Appalachia at Berea College in Berea, 
Kentucky. Attending the consortiums were representatives of fourteen 
colleges from that region. 

One of the proposals that was discussed was a possible exchange 
between UMass and the other schools of faculty and students. Doctoral 
candidates, and other students from the Appalachian region could come 
and study at UMass and UMass faculty and students could spend a 
semester at one of the region's schools. 

The Wesley Methodist Church is also sponsoring exchange programs 
with Appalachia. Working with Union College in Barbourville, Ken- 
ucky, the church project is constructed along the lines of a Vista 
aroject. People involved with the program usually spend their time 
Dhysically rehabiUtating the area. Included among the projects are 
he reconstruction and renovation of housing and the organization of 
immunity resources. 

The program is set up in the form of workshops. Representatives 
;rom church groups all over the country come to Union and are given 
specific assignments. 

Among the activities this summer are a special seminar on Appal- 
achia offered for those interested in the problems and needs of the 
region.

Battle Between Regents And Faculty Rocks UTexas 



AUSTIN, Tex., - The University 
of Texas is struggling to regain 
its footing in the aftermath of an 
internal battle marked by a bit- 
terness that has shocked even sea- 
soned campus observers. 

The battle has seen the almost 
complete turnover (to some, a po- 
litical purge carried out l^ con- 
servative regents) of the school's 
top administrators, the splitting up 
of the College of Arts and Sciences, 
the abrupt cUsmissal of its nation- 
ally respected dean and threats 
of resignation by many top pro- 
fessors. 

"I've never seen such low, hard- 
knuckled old Boston ward politics 
as here *' said one senior profes- 
sor, "this is the worst I've seen 
in the academic world." Another 
said, "There's terror in the air." 
For two weeks, the Texas cam- 
pus has reverberated with charges 
of political interference by the 
regents, who are political appoin- 
tees. 

Other Clashes 
The situation reflects growing 
difficulties on the campuses of pub- 
lic universities in many states, 
including California and Colora- 
do, where politically appointed or 
elected regents have clashed with 
the faculty and staff over educa- 
tional and administrative policy. 



The Texas story has all the ele- 
ments of a Greek tragedy, with a 
cast of characters moving inex- 
orable toward their predetermin- 
ed fates. But many fear that it 
will leave the university in the 
backwash of education where it 
found itself in 1944 when its 
president. Homer P. Rainey, was 
dismissed by conservative regents 
in a similar struggle. 

The chief antogonlsts are Dr. 
John R. Silber, the charismatic 




and ambitious dean of the Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences^ an( 
Frank C. Erwin, Jr., chairmai 
of the board of regents and a po- 
litical friend of former President 
Lyndon B. Johnson and former 
Gov. John B. ConnallyJr.ofTexas. 

Dr. Silber, 44 years old today, 
is a Yale -educated, Texas-born 
philosopher respected as an ex- 
pert on Kant, the 18th-century Ger- 
man metaphysical philosopher. 
Dr. Silber has been given much of 
the credit for raising Texas to the 
first rank academically in many 
areas over the last three years. 
Until a year ago, he worked well 
with Mr. Erwin, who is 50. 

Just why Dr. Silber should have 
become a target is not clear. He 
is no radical, and has vaciDated 
from dovish to hawkish stands on 
the Vietnam war. "Silber talks 
liberal to liberals and conserva- 
tive to conservatives," one ob- 
server said. 

Mr. Erwin has been accused of 
trying to run the school politi- 
cally. But even many of his ene- 
mies concede that he has worked 
hard to increase appropriations 
for the university and to raise its 
stature in his seven years as a 
regent. 

Three weeks ago, on July 24, 
Dr. Silber was summarily dis- 



missed as dean by Dr. Charles 
A. LeMaistre, Mr. Erwin's pri- 
vate physician, who was recently 
appointed chancellor -elect of the 
10- campus system. Dr. Silber 
had earlier refused to resign at 
the request of Dr. Bryce Jordan, 
interim president of the Austin 
campus. 

Showing His Colors 
No reason was given. Dr. Jor- 
dan said only that "the interests 
of the University of Texas at Aus- 




c rwin

Poor Planning Resulted 
In This Disaster 







But It's A Safe Plan to Suscribe 
To The Daily Collegian 



tin required it." It is widely as- 
sumed here that themanl)ehindthe 
dismissal was Mr. Erwin, a man 
who loves the university so much 
that he drives around in a Cadi- 
llac iKiinted orange and white - 
the school colors. 

A week later, the regents voted 
without faculty approval, to split 

the 15,000-student College of Arts 
and Sciences into three separate 
schools, abolishing Dr. Silber's 
job. The move was vigorously 
opposed by Dr. Silber. 

According to Dr. Jordan, the 
split was made because the col- 
lege had become too big and there 
was a need to "increasingly per- 
sonalize the undergraduate expe- 
rience." Others say it was a 
maneuver to dislodge Dr. Silber. 

The events are the latest in a 
series of changes this year that 
have included the premature re- 
tirement of Chancellor Harry Ran- 
som, who had some time ago re- 
linquished duties to Dr. LeMais- 
tre, and the departure of Dr. Nor- 
man Hackerman, the president of 
Austin, who was to head Rice Uni- 
versity in Houston. Both changes 
are generally attributed to pres- 
sure flrom Mr. Erwin, 

But Dr. Silber's dismissal has 
prompted the greatest unhappiness 
and the reasons remain obsecure. 
In an interview. Dr. Jordan said, 
"I dont want to comment on the 
dean's dismissal other than to sav 
it was an administrative decision." 

Repeated calls to Mr. Erwin's 
law office here were unsuccessful 
in locating him for comment. Dr. 
Silber, reached by telephone on 
vacation in Vermont, said he had 
been given no reason for his dis- 
missal. 

Attributed to Success 

According to friends of Dr. Sil- 
ber's, his dismissal was rooted in 
his success as an administrator 
and fund- raiser. "This is a man 
who overshadows everyone on the 
Austin campus," said one friend of 
the dean, "he is threatening to 
every other dean^ the chancellor 
and even Frank Erwin, who likes 
to keep people under his control." 

Another source, who asked not 
to be named, maintained that Mr. 
Erwin was "a man who aspires to 
take over the state" and was using 
the university as a political base. 

This source described the rapid- 
ly expanding university system as 
the second largest industry in the 
state after oil, and said that mil- 
lions of dollars worth of patronage 
and contracts were at stake. Dr. 
Silber was known to be a leading 
candidate for the presidency of the 
Austin campus. 

But some faculty sources con- 
tended that the idea that Mr. Er- 
win and Dr. Silber were locked in 
a power struggle was a distortion. 
One professor portrayed Dr. Sil- 
ber as an arrogant, vindictive 



man with as much ambition as Mr. 
Erwin, and who has used his po- 
sition as dean to "buy" support 
for his own policy. 

"Silber is a man of ve irong 
likes and dislikes," the i..ofessor 
said. "It is generally regarded 
that he made out salaries ac- 
cordingly. Some of the highest 
salaries were received by his sup- 
porters." 

According to one source, the last 
straw was an incident with a new 
department chairman who was pro- 
mised substantial support l)y Dr. 
Silber. But this suRwrt, the source 
said, was made contingent on the 
new chairman's support for Dr. 
Silber in his battle with the re- 
gents over the proposal to split 
the college. Reportedly, the chair- 
man complained to the top ad- 
ministration, and Dr. Silber was 
dismissed the next day. 

Dr. Silber says the charges 
about salary favoritism are "ab- 
solutely false." As for the al- 
leged pressuring of the new chair- 
man. Dr. Silber said he had told 
the man only that he could not 
promise the sui^rt if the dean's 
job was abolished. 

Whatever the real reason for 
Dr. Silber's dismissal, many fear 
the chief casualty wiU be the uni- 
versity. A number of professors 
have already said that they would be 
looking for new jobs soon, although 
Dr. Silber has urged them to re- 
main. He himself will stay on, 
at least for a year, as a philoso- 
irfiy professor. 

Dr. William Arrowsmith, a clas- 
sicist and educational critic, has 
said that "many of us are now 
doubtful that the University of Tex- 
as is a desirable place to teach." 

"The atmosphere of corrupt ar- 
rogance and raw, vulgar exercise 
of power, which now character- 
izes the administration of the uni- 
versity makes it virtually certain 
that nothing of educational impor- 
tance can any longer happen here," 
he is reported to have told Dr. 
LeMaistre, the chancellor-elect. 

Mr. Erwin's advice to anyone 
threatening to resign was to "quit 
playing games in the newspapers 
and submit his resignation" - a 
statement that has annonyed many 
of his allies on the faculty. 

While most of the 3a,uuu or so 
students are away from the cam- 
pus, student reaction to the dean's 
dismissal has generally been one of 
outrage. The Daily Texan, the stu- 
dent newspaper, has decried what it 
called "cutthroat methods" by the ^ - 
regents and his rallied behind Dr. ^i: , 
Silber. 

Mr. Erwin has said that he plans 
to resign as chairman of the re- 
gents at the end of the year. Last ' 
year, the general faculty voted, 
242 to 197. to call for his resig- 
nation, although only about one- 
third of the faculty voted. And 
last January, students also called 
for his ouster in a referendum. 
But only about 20 per cent of the 
students voted.

recent problems of pollution has 
resulted from the salting of streets 
for snow and ice removal during 
the winter. Salt concentrations 
of wells throughout the state have 
increased, so markedly in some 
cases as to change the taste of 
the water. Pollution then, re- 
sults basically from the follow- 
ing: domestic sewage, industrial 
wastes, solid waste disposal si- 
tes, runoff from lands and str- 
eets, industrial wastes, solid waste 
disposal sites, runoff from lands 
and streets, industrial cooling pro- 
cesses, motorboats and deliberate 
or accidental spills. And like 
Sam Coleridge's death fires, which 
burn like witch's oils in the ni^t, 
they can only be quelled by men, 
who have also killed the ancient 
albatross.
